First Grade

Welcome to 1st Grade

The first year of school is the foundation for the future building blocks of education. We desire to make LEARNING FUN by creating an exciting, vibrant, loving, structured setting for learning and character building to occur. We believe that education must take place in three different places: the home, school, and church.

We have a number of special days throughout the year including:
  • November – Teddy Bear Picnic
  • December – Christmas Around the World
  • January – Winnie-the-Pooh Day
  • February – Cowboy Day
  • March – Dr. Seuss Week
  • May – Beach Day
