1st Grade Service Spotlight!

*This past week we read Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree". Then, we passed around hearts for each student in our classroom and we took turns writing one gift that we are thankful for, that each of our classmates brings to our 1st grade family. We found ourselves reflecting on our many gifts given to us by God such as being helpful, caring, creative, and many, many more!


  • Lab Coats...We are studying Science this semester! Please, if you haven't done so already, send in an old white dress shirt for your 1st grader (which can be purchased at a thrift store, if needed). These will be transformed into our lab coats so that we can observe, make hypotheses, predict, experiment, do research, and record data just like real scientist!
