Huckleberry is a perfect name for the first graders of MRA.  Just like these little berries, the students are both sweet and bold.  Here is where they ripen their academic skills.  The Huckleberries focus on stretching their brains towards academic excellence, being empathetic classmates, and cultivating their curiosity.


There is a two year thematic cycle in the Huckleberry Classroom.  These are the thematic units:

         Environments Year: Seasons and Cycles

                 - Fall: Animal Migrations - through the lens of salmon, caribou, and monarchs

                 - Winter: The Human Body - understanding the purpose and interconnections of systems and cycles

                 - Spring: Plant Life Cycles - going deep through observations and experiments 

         Communities Year: Time and Space

                 - Fall: Our Local and Global Community - studying Molalla through time and comparing school and home worldwide

                 - Winter: Our Solar System - learning at the edge of understanding  

                 - Spring: Honeybees - how a community thrives
