Our third grade mission statement is as follows: Third grade is working towards building independence, reliability and accountability. We strive to master multiplication and division. We are continually working to ensure all third graders are reading proficiently by the end of the year.
This mission is met through the use of:
- Individual lessons that utilize standards-based materials
- Lessons taught in a sequential order so that basic skills are taught before building on them
- Individualized reading groups at a students level meant to teach them their level and grow them to higher reading levels
- The use of technology to help students better learn the skills being taught and learn 21st century technology skills
