Welcome to Third Grade
“When we learn, we grow.” In third grade, students take a big step up and learn to become more independent and responsible. With reading on the way to mastery, students learn more reading strategies and expand their vocabulary. They often crack open a book as they use those reading skills to learn all the subjects from Bible lessons to science. Students grow both academically and spiritually with Christ at the center of all they do.
