Hola Firsties!!


We are going to spend this year exploring and learning all about South America.  Our classroom this year will narrow down our learning and will focus mostly on Bolivia and their culture.  Its going to be so much fun!!

2017-18 Homework Policy   




 After much research this summer, we are trying something new. Homework will only consist of work that your student did not finish during the school day and/or an individual task we feel your child may need to work on. There will not be formal homework assigned this year. 


Research has been unable to prove that homework improves student performance. Rather, we ask that you spend your evenings doing things that are proven to correlate with student success: eating dinner as a family, reading together, playing outside, and getting your child to bed early. 


Your child may bring home books on his/her reading level with questions that you can use to spark conversation. Both of these will be located in your child’s folder. We will also have optional resources posted on our websites to meet your child’s needs.

Thanks- The first grade team :)
