Welcome to 3rd Grade - We are better together!

Have a wonderful summer! Read, read, read!!

Our main focus in math is multiplication and division, so any practice you can do at home with flashcards greatly supports your student's success in math. We have a reading goal program called Accelerated Reader. Students read books and then take a test on the book. They earn points for the questions they get correct. The goal for 3rd grade is 10 points per trimester. Tests can be taken at home or at school. Social studies focuses on local history culminating in a county wide 3rd grade day field trip in the spring.
