Your first grader is making a major transition this year and will be becoming independent learners. Your child will become readers, writers and mathematicians in first grade.

Your child will begin to recognize the inseparable relationships among reading, writing, listening and speaking. He/she will learn to read for enjoyment and information, express their own thoughts verbally and in written form, and ask relevant questions.

The students are involved in inquiry within a structured math and science geared to fostering critical thinking and problem solving.

This is the year they "learn to learn" in preparation for a lifetime of learning.
