First graders are immersed in a variety of lessons and activities that promote social-emotional growth and physical wellness. The children participate in the Second Step program which focuses on Empathy, Impulse Control and Problem Solving, and Anger Management. In addition, the students take part in the Great Body Shop program that highlights age-appropriate health and safety lessons. Lastly, all first graders learn about and discuss the character traits that are emphasized in the district's Character Education program. Our goal is for students to become independent problem solvers who can make mindful decisions about their own health and safety.       

Here is the list of Character Traits that we focus on monthly in the classroom:

  • September:  Courtesy
  • October:  Honesty
  • November:  Responsibility
  • December:  Respect
  • January:  Tolerance
  • February:  Compassion
  • March:  Endurance
  • April:  Accountability
  • May:  Attaining Pride
  • June:  Review of all the Character Traits
