Welcome to 1st Grade!

This website is to help keep 1st grade parents informed of any important information to help their child be successful this year. If you have any questions, please contact your child's teacher.

Basic Information

  • School ends at 3:35 pm, except on Wednesdays, our minimum day, when school ends at 1:00 pm.
