Welcome to 1st Grade!  We're glad you're visiting our page; it's a great way to keep up-to-date on what we're learning and doing.  If you need to contact a teacher, please click on the "Staff" section to the right and choose the teacher that you would like to send a message to.  Please check here for information on special events/days, dress up days, fields trips, etc.
Some of the activities and days we celebrate in 1st grade are:

  • We stress the "ar" sound with Pirate Day and dress up like pirates.
  • Compound Word Day - We wear as many compound words as we can!
  • College Go Week where we learn about education and training beyond high school and wear our favorite college gear.
