Welcome to Grade 1A

This year our school-wide theme is 'Explore! Experience! Evaluate!' which is inspired by Psalm 34:8. As a class we will be exploring this theme in addition to our Grade 1 storyline: Be Brave Be Bold. This concept will be woven throughout our curricular units as we discover the creative and redemptive ways God helps us to be brave and bold as we learn more about who He is and who we are.


My name is Mrs. J. Siepman. I have been teaching at Calvin Christian for over 30 years. I have 4 married children with 17 grandchildren. I love teaching Grade 1 where the children learn to read and are excited about learning. I pray for a great year for all the students. I pray they will all learn to be Brave and Bold as they learn more about God and his beautiful world.
