Welcome to Third Grade!
It is our goal to prepare our students for fourth grade and ultimately for life. To this end we will follow Ohio's New Learning Standards and help to instill positive behavior.
Third Grade is the first year for state testing. Students will take the AIR tests in reading and math. There will be many opportunities for preparation throughout the year for these tests.
Students will be paid for positive behavior with class coins. They may save these up to purchase treats during the year, as well as an end of the year party. Inappropriate behavior will be fined accordingly.
Homework is expected to be completed nightly. Students will be paid for homework turned in. Students who don't turn in homework will do it during first recess time.
