Academic Focus

In math, third grade is continuing to focus on Multiplication. We are playing lots of games and connecting concepts to real world examples.

In Language Arts, students began the year studying Fred Korematsu and Civil Rights from the perspective of Japanese Americans during World War II. Students have been making connections with the modern day and with the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s.
