Our motto in Grade 1 is to "take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!" (Yes, I am quoting Miss Frizzle, she's my hero).
When your child comes to Grade 1 something magical happens, they turn into an explorer! Our theme verse is Proverbs 25:2, "It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out." (ESV) We thrive on living an adventure, working hard, and discovering new learning (or treasure) as we grow together. Here is our classroom creed, "I am an explorer. I love God and worship Him with my life. I love others and show them by being kind and helpful. I listen well and work hard as I search for treasure!"
In Grade 1, we value differentiated instruction, where we meet your child where they are at and individualize programs to help each of them meet their potential. We have fun, we learn and grow, we laugh, we learn how to work as a team, and we learn about God's great big love for us. Hope to see you and your kiddos! :)
