School Year 2019-2020
Welcome to First Grade. I am very excited about the many learning experiences we will share and the fun events for 2019-2020! Your child will be learning through core resources such as Reading Wonders for English Language Arts, and Stepping Stones for math.
During the year skills are reinforced to utilize educational apps. Passwords, Usernames, and instructions have been sent home with your child. If you haven't yet, start your child with these fun learning apps today!
Apps: IXL, Reading Wonders, Digital Library, and Smarty Ants
Here students use Stepping Stones to learn about doubles facts.
Students experiment using flash lights to learn about shadows and the spinning sky.

Dear Students,
The year has definitely not gone as expected, with the school closure due to the pandemic we have been thrust into a new way to learn, and a new way to teach. However, we are resilient and I believe we will come through this stronger than we were before. Take this time to show yourself that you are a self directed learner, a community contributor, a complex thinker, a quality producer, an effective communicator, and an effective and ethical user of technology. For if there was ever a time to prove it, it is here and now. Be well and stay safe.
