Grade 1

Week of Jan. 9-13

Hello Grade One Families!

On behalf of Mrs. Dos Santos, Mrs. Santa Ana, Mrs. Lam and myself, we would like to wish all of our Grade 1 families a very happy new year. 

This week was my first week in the Grade 1 classroom. It was so fun getting to meet all of the students and returning to the St. Paul community! 

This week the children were super excited to share their stores from the Christmas break. A massive thank you to all of the grade 1 students (and Mrs. Santa Ana and Mrs Lam) for helping me get used to the schedule each day and showing me where things go in the classroom! I can’t wait to spend the rest of 2023 getting to know the class.
