Grades 1 and 2


First and second graders are excited about school and ready to learn. They are full of questions about what we are studying and the world around us. To encourage a love for learning, we take time to discuss our questions and talk about where to look for the answers. We know God created each of us differently, so we enjoy our multi-grade classroom and the flexibility to join in where we are best able to succeed. Let's talk about how we can partner in the education of your child.
