1st Grade

In 1st grade we take ownership of our reading using Book Boxes and bond with our 6th grade reading buddies. We perfect our manuscript handwriting, work on new math concepts including 2-digit addition, geometric attributes, graphs, clocks and money and work on a service project making blankets for St. Francis House. We journey to Mexico in Social Studies. 

Ms. Sue Pain


I have over thirty years of experience teaching both Kindergarten and 1st grade at St. George and Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Schools. I believe that a classroom should be a safe and caring community and an environment where children can grow and meet their full potential. I act as a guide through hands-on activities, learning choices and individual work that engages and activates students' learning.
