The 1st grade is taught phonics and blends which establishes a great foundation in reading. They learn Biblical characteristics, cooperation, communication, and self-control which will benefit each student for years to come. Simple math problems, sentence form, spelling words, basic science, and Bible are the main topics taught throughout the year. Weekly Chapel services are participated by grades K5-5th.
The 1st grade also has fun events throughout the year along with field trips. Clown Day, Glow in the Dark Day, Columbia Riverbanks Zoo and an outing to a local farm is always something each student looks forward to. Music, PE, art, and library are electives that the students participate in weekly.
