First Grade

First Grade is a year of exceptional growth. Our first grade team continues to focus on developing those foundational academic and social skills necessary to thrive as a student and in life.

Our first graders become readers, writers, mathematicians and scientists as they strive to better understand their world. They ask questions, engage in discussions, and collaborate to complete multiple projects. Students continue to experience and learn about our local community through multiple field trips. We visit dairy farms, the beach, and the Garibaldi boat house.

Our first grade team continues to stress the benefits of hard work and the productive struggle in making new connections and growing stronger brains. Students leave first grade, ready to transition to South Prairie as a second grader, confident in their skills as a learner and embracing every opportunity to be helpful and show others kindness.
