 Dear 1st Grade Families,
First grade is one of the most important years of your child's education.  During this year, the seeds of learning will be developed through reading, writing, and exploring the world around us.  Most likely, the seeds of reading and writing have been planted.  During first grade those seeds will grow and blossom making your child a reader and writer.  You will see changes in your child's thinking, as he/she becomes familiar with different math concepts, new words, new technology.   My hope is that your child becomes  empowered both academically and socially to be the best that they can be.  They will walk in a first grader, walk  out a leader.
