The First Grade Team at Manitou Elementary is dedicated to providing students with an exceptional, memorable, and positive experience that will prepare them for the road of life ahead. We focus on high-quality academic instruction, experiential and exploratory learning, individual empowerment, social growth and relationships, and lots of laughter and fun!
