Welcome to first grade at East Lake!
First grade focuses on building identities by working together as a community of learners. Students will learn to take risks and ask questions which will naturally lead to new learning opportunities.
Our classrooms foster a warm and inviting environment where students will be able to continue to build their characters by being respectful, responsible, kind, and independent community members.
First grade highlights during the school year include making new friends, learning routines for independence, community building, using technology, becoming readers and writers, and communicators of our thinking!
