They will soar on wings like Eagles... Isaiah 40:31

Our Overall Goal

By third grade, we see attention spans increasing, an interest in perfecting skills and detailed activities, and the pursuit of varied and numerous interests.

As academic understanding increases, our objective for your third graders is to help them become more responsible as they begin to set goals and realize the consequences of their decisions. Not only will they continue mastering the basic skills needed for future academic growth, but it is our goal that all students will leave third grade feeling both confident and successful!
