In this classroom we do thank yous.       We do respect.       We do mistakes.  We do praise.    We do our best.    We do I am sorry.   We do friendships.       We do laughter.        We do learning.   

First Graders are forming habits that they need to know to succeed in school. Creating a helpful, caring environment is a priority in our classroom.   When children care about each others' feelings they soon desire to help each other succeed.  First Grade is all about the joy of reading which helps to create a passion for learning throughout life.

                                            The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
