First Grade Update

The first graders have been enjoying loads of fun activities in recent weeks such as the Cougar Run Fun Run and all the celebratory events at the close of the fund raiser. Thanks to everyone who contributed to our efforts! We also had so much fun building map skills as we explored the GIANT map of Colorado!
