The First grade program at St. Mary seeks to foster confidence, self-discipline, and respect in a nurturing Catholic academic environment. Religion is integrated throughout the school day and focuses on the presence of God in our daily lives through the Gospel, Stations of the Cross, Mysteries of the Rosary, and weekly Mass attendance.

Students benefit from a challenging curriculum. Our learning journey is packed with excitement, exploration, and growth. We are learning to learn. Listening, sharing, working, and playing together results in enthusiasm for learning. Light homework  assignments are introduced along with a daily planner. Integration of age appropriate study skills takes place across all disciplines.
