“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and smarter than you think and stronger than you seem.” –Christopher Robin to Pooh

In the Helping Hands class, we pride ourselves on our strong sense of family and community. We have virtues that we discuss and practice on a daily basis. We have a small class size of 22 students as well as an instructional aide. In the first grade, students build confidence, critical thinking and leadership skills. In the beginning of the year, we learn rules, procedures, and routines that are practiced throughout the year. By exploring the curriculum in a hands-on manner, academic knowledge becomes more meaningful and more memorable. Our class goes on several field trips each year. Art and movement are incorporated into each and every subject to promote creative, happy and freethinking individuals while also keeping learning meaningful and fun!
