About First Grade
As a wise person once said, “Practice makes permanent.” That is what it means to do things the first grade way. Utilizing the foundational skills introduced in the kindergarten program, first graders build their repertoire of strategies to become proficient readers, writers, and communicators.
First grade is a time of growth and exploration. The focus of first grade is building foundational skills academically, socially, and spiritually. Through age-appropriate faith experiences, the first graders become ready, responsible, and respectful members of their community.
