If you ask any third grader for the highlight of their year, they will say “Safety City.” It is the only year that students get to not only ride their bikes and walk at Safety City, but also get to drive a car.
Third grade is a transition year where we “read to learn” after “learning to read” in K-2 in preparation for their first year of Reading STAR. We are working hard for that goal.
We also love recognizing and giving certificates to those students who master their multiplication and division facts at the end of the year assembly. This is just one way we prepare for the Math STAR.
