Welcome to the First Grade Jungle

March 10, 2017

In First Grade, we have started studying the Iditarod, the great dog sled race in Alaska. The race began on March 6 this year. In order to make it even more fun for the children, each student has chosen a musher (person competing in the race) to follow and traack throughout the next weeks. Ask your child what he or she has learned about the Iditarod. Or see what your child remembers about his/her musher! The students are very interested in learning more about this fascinating race!

Iditarod...and they're off and running!

Parent conference day will be held on Thursday, March 23. Please use the link here to sign up for a conference time slot. The event code is

Recently, the children have been participating in a challenge called Breakout. This challenge involves unlocking a box, which is locked with many different locks. Children must work together, find and use clues, think critically, and share ideas to be successful! It has been fun and exciting to watch as your children demonstrate leadership qualities and critical thinking skills to unlock the box! Be sure to check out the video posted on our class portal page, which highlights the Breakout challenge!
