In First Grade, we learn so many important skills as we build upon our prior knowledge from kindergarten. We focus on a deeper understanding of reading, writing, spelling, and beginning math skills. Successful learners strengthen their skills by learning how to study, organize, and make responsible choices. We will continue to encourage respect for self and others as we build our “FAMILY’ community here at school! We emphasize personal accountability and responsibility with each student. We are firm on helping our students self-monitor their behavioral and academic choices. Our classrooms are built on the principle of community.
