3rd Grade

Grade(s): 3rd Grade

We Hope This Year Proves To Be A Challenging And Exciting Year Of Learning!

Third grade is a very special year in your child’s school career. Students will be making the transition from a primary student to an intermediate student. The third grade team of teachers can’t wait to guide them along this journey as they become more independent and responsible learners. Please review your classroom teacher's handbook for the nuts and bolts of third grade. Visit your child’s individual teacher site for more specific details regarding classroom policies and procedures.
