First Grade Dreams BIG

First Grade Dreams BIG

Can you find that old photo hidden away in a drawer of you dressed up in a costume of what you wanted to be when you grew up? Granted, not all of us would grow up to be superheroes, ballerinas and professional baseball players. However, the idea to dream big and reach for the stars is what ultimately leads us to whatever successful future we hold.

With a big welcome, an opening prayer, pledges and scripture reading, our first graders were ready to take the stage for their highly anticipated first grade program, “Dream Big: What I Want to Be When I Grow Up.” 

Prepared for their future, costumed students proudly paraded through the Sanctuary showing parents, grandparents and special friends just what they want to be when they grow up. From doctors, teachers, artists and engineers to video game programmers, an Olympic sprinter and even a master Lego builder, students stepped onto the stage and cleverly described their future occupations. They then sang in perfect unison, celebrating through songs the plans they know God has for the Class of 2031.

“First grade's ‘Dream Big’ program impacts our students by teaching them that God has a perfect plan for their lives and by following Him, they can accomplish anything they set their minds to. This year, first graders showed us that our future is looking bright! We can't wait to see what God has in store for them!,” said first grade teacher Ms. Jenna Jones ‘04.

Thanks to the dedication of Mrs. Liza Brown, director and lower school music teacher, and the hard work of the first grade class, the show was a rousing success.
