August 10th was an amazing day…full of excitement, maybe a few nerves, and complete joy! August 10th was FIRST day of our FIRST grade adventures as the FIRST classes of Picolata Crossing Pumas came through our doors!
We spent that first day, and the 6 days since, getting to know each other and adjusting to our new surroundings. For those who haven’t seen our school yet, please make a point to stop in at one of our many upcoming events. Words and pictures just can’t explain how blessed we are with such a beautiful campus!
One of the things we have focused on in these first days is CHARACTER. We have read several books, such as The Recess Queen, Stand Tall Molly Lou Melon, What if Everybody Did That, and others, that launched discussions about what great character traits we should show every day! We also worked on building our own character to show PERSEVERANCE through struggles. Be sure to ask your child how we worked together to “Save Sam”!
I can’t wait to see what these next 173 days of our Safari Through First Grade have in store for us!
