What is special about First Grade?
Field trips: We plan fun and engaging field trips that align with our core curriculum content areas.
Holidays Around the World: Each class represents a different country and students travel and learn holiday customs throughout the week. We culminate the week with a food tasting.
Hundreds Day: We celebrate the 100th day of school by sharing student-created at-home projects and fun activities in different classrooms.
Books and Beyond:
All 1st graders can participate in “Books and Beyond,” our reading incentive program that rewards Kindergarten and 1st-grade students for books read at school and at home.
Parents help students keep track of their reading progress on recording sheets, and progress is tracked on a big bulletin board in their hallway.
In the spring we have a special recognition ceremony honoring all of our fantastic readers.
