First Grade Jitters
The first grade is an exciting time at our school, as children transition from the familiarity of home or kindergarten into a more formal learning environment. While this can bring on first grade jitters, your first grade child has a sense of wonder and imagination perfectly suited to this new challenge. And our curriculum is thoughtfully designed to reward this curiosity, laying the foundation for lifetime learning.
