Grade 1 Teachers
The Unit 1 Moral Education guide for parents was sent home today. It outlines the learning outcomes and has two activities that you can try at home with all your family members. This is a great opportunity to foster strong school-to-home connections.

Order forms will go home this week. We will be taking both class and individual photos. Please make sure your child wears the UAS collared shirt.
