 Welcome to First Grade!
"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it" Proverbs 22:6


 
In our first grade classroom, the main focus is to educate the whole child: mind, body and soul.  We will learn important core subjects, such as reading, math, science, and social studies, to enrich our minds and help us become better citizens.  We will often be moving, whether that be in the gym or in the classroom, to keep our bodies fit and healthy.  But most importantly, we will educate our souls through daily devotions, prayers, Christ Light lessons, and Christian songs.  Our school wide vision this year is "Every student loves, learns, laughs, and leads."  This encapsulates everything that we will learn at Garden Homes Lutheran school, whether in the classroom or out.  By the end of the year, our students will have grown academically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually and be ready for the transition into 2nd grade.
