At St. Symphorosa...

Third grade is a big transition year for the students, who are now in the intermediate grades. Each student is helped to reach his or her highest potential through alternate ways of teaching, group work, and individual help.  All subjects are taught using the Common Core State Standards.  DOK (Depth of Knowledge) questions are given to help the students obtain a higher level of thinking.   Students are shown respect and learn to respect others. Service projects are one way to show we are Christians and care about others.  The third graders have pre-school buddies that we take to church for special prayer services and masses.
