Welcome to the world of First Grade at St. Pius School in Southgate, Michigan!
We are proud to offer a first grade experience filled with wonderful learning opportunities in a Christ centered environment. The children learn through a variety of teaching methods such as whole group instruction, small learning groups, hands-on activities, and individualized activities. Both first grade classrooms are equipped with a Smart Board for interactive learning.
Our first grade curriculum includes Religion, English/writing, handwriting, mathematics, science, social studies and reading. We are excited to use the F.A.S.T. Reading System and have seen great success with our first grade readers!
First grade takes one to two field trips a year. Our past trips have included the Leslie Nature Centre, The Toledo Zoo, and the Michigan Theatre.
The children also experience learning in the areas of Spanish, computer, physical education, music and art. They have the opportunity to explore in our science and computer labs. Our school is proud of our student library with well over 11,000 titles. The first grade participates in the Accelerated Reader Program as well.
Thank you for looking at our website. St. Pius first graders try to follow Jesus daily as we Study, Pray and Serve.
