First Grade Team

Welcome to First Grade! 


The goal of the First Grade Team is to help each student become a successful and independent learner. We are dedicated to the education of the whole child--intellectually, socially, emotionally, culturally, and physically. We believe that First Grade lays the foundation for a lifetime of enthusiastic learning. We are committed to providing classrooms that are welcoming, exciting, and safe. Our students should want to come to school each day ready to learn and our goal is to make this happen.
