Primary Grades

Grade 1

Welcome to First Grade: a transition from Kindergarten to the path of lifelong learning! First grade is an exciting, yet challenging, year of many firsts: losing teeth, formal testing, reading, and leading prayer services. Responsibility, independence, and social skills are stressed during this year of spiritual, academic, and emotional growth.

Grade 2

Second grade marks a special time in a child's life as they transition from learning to read to reading to learn. As second graders, they become more independent and confident about their abilities to hold conversations, communicate their thoughts, and use creativity to solve simple problems. The children develop their ability to work together towards a common goal through several team building exercises and challenges.
