Home Students Classroom Pages Grade 1 - Mrs. Allen Welcome 2017

Welcome 2017


January opens

The box of the year

And brings out days

That are bright and clear.

And brings out days

That are cold and gray,

And shouts, "Come see

What I brought today!"

We are back from a nice Christmas Vacation, and I am sure we are all well rested and ready to take on the New Year!  We will be very busy as we usually are each month with activities, such as Mass with Bishop and Christian, Catholic Schools Week.

Some of what 1A will be learning this month are as follows:
