The third grade program encourages students to demonstrate the joy of learning and appreciate that learning is a life-long pursuit in striving to do one’s “personal best.” Time management, self-assessment and goal setting are key components of the third grade curriculum. Students learn to reflect on, analyze, synthesize and reevaluate their academic, social and spiritual growth. The ability to work independently and purposefully is emphasized in all areas of the curriculum. The importance of respect for one’s self, the classroom community, the outside community and the environment is highly emphasized, encouraged and modeled.
