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. Click here for a printable Books & Beyond recording sheet.

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.
