Welcome to first grade at Washington Elementary. Through our Getting Along Together program we teach life skills to encourage positive peer interactions and problem solving skills. Our core values come from PRIDE- Positive Attitude, Respect, Integrity, Dedication and Excellence. First grade is an important year for our students as they use emergent reading strategies to become successful readers. In Math, students will develop a deeper number sense to solve computation facts, word problems, measurement, telling time and shapes. Throughout the year, students will also learn about the world around them, present and past, through Socials Studies and STEM.
