Parents will begin to notice their first graders reading, creating stories, adding, subtracting and developing problem-solving skills.  They are learning that they are unique and special.  They also learn that God, our loving Father, gives us many gifts – the most important gift being Jesus. Prayer is an important aspect of life and each day begins and ends with a prayer.
