First Grade Team

We are excited for a fun year at JWS and ready to kick off a terrific start to a year of learning and growing in First Grade.  Be sure to check out our individual teacher pages to learn more about our awesome team! 

We'll be posting important event dates, fun classroom happenings, and interesting curriculum updates throughout the year, so be sure to check back often and see what's going on in the BEST grade at JWS. 

First Grade Goal: By the end of the year, all First Grade students will be prepared for Second Grade, as measured by end of the year assessments. 

First Grade Mission: We promise to be kind to one another, help others when they need it, listen and learn every day, and do the right thing during the school day. We will be leaders in education.
