• Welcome to our First Grade Classes! There are two teachers in the First Grade. They are Mrs. Brady and Ms. Bonin! 

    In First Grade, students deepen their understanding of Math, Science and Social Studies through an engaging curriculum. In many ways, First Grade is a year of important transitions, as children leave behind much of the play of preschool and kindergarten and dive into developing deeper academic skills.  First graders progress from having beginner reading and writing skills to becoming beginning readers and writers, as they not only read and write more often, but with greater comprehension and ability, too.

Ms. Bonin

My name is Kacie Bonin and I teach grade 1. I have been working in the Lowell Public Schools at different capacities since 2011 and I started teaching at the Washington School in 2019. Having attended Lowell Public Schools, I am extremely excited that I get to teach students from my home city. I love teaching and find it truly rewarding. I am glad I get to be a part of my students lifelong learning. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, sitting back on the beach, or just hanging out with my dog, Gigi.

Ms. Bonin teaches Room 111.
