First Methodist School – Not Just Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic
Our four year olds heard the story The Kissing Hand at school last week. This book helps children adjust to being away from their parents/loved ones. We ensure that our students grow socially and emotionally in addition to academically!
There are a limited number of spots available for the 2018-2019 school year for students ages 1 year – kindergarten. If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us!
We look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary next school year. Mark your calendar for November 2018 when we will have special anniversary celebrations!
