• I believe each learner is a flower in bloom.  As flowers need seeds, water and sunlight to properly develop, so do first grade students.  The seeds of knowledge are planted as a young learner and continue to grow forever.  The water given to our students is our attention to their individual and diverse learning needs.  The sunlight is provided by each child's radiance.  My aim this year is to provide the essential roots of a life long learner. -  Mrs. Giannantonio
