In third grade, the students continue to build on their foundation of learning in order to be successful as they continue to go through school.  They learn social skills as well as academic skills.  Some of the social skills are taught through religion class as well as religion concepts that come up throughout the day, and by learning about and living the virtues.  For academic success, we introduce and develop skills such as higher level thinking skills, problem solving, and finding content in text.  Some of the highlights in third grade are:  learning the multiplications facts and doing a research project for the first time.
