Welcome to First Grade!


First grade is such an important part of your child's education.  We know you will be amazed at the amount of growth your child will experience throughout this school year.  

As a team, we are so excited to see what the 2017-2018 school year has to hold for this sweet group of students!  We feel that it is a great honor to be teaching at the BESt school in the parish. We take the responsibility of spending our day with your babies very seriously.  We hope to work with you as a team, to ensure both a positive and successful school year for all of our students! Thank you for this opportunity!
