In third grade, students move up to the second floor of our school - a big milestone! This banner year at St. Paul's features challenging curriculum, hands-on projects, and plenty of opportunities for students to build their leadership skills. Notably, students move from being little buddies to big buddies in our beloved Buddy Program. Creative learning units on community helpers, the Oregon Trail, and the Amazon rainforest allow students to explore unique parts of our world and history. Learn more about third grade curriculum, special classes, and a typical daily schedule below.
Service Learning in Third Grade
At St. Paul's, we help students learn the value of serving others. Each grade level works with a community partner organization for embedded service projects throughout the year.
Third Grade Partner Organization - St. Paul's Food Pantry
In the fall, third grade students support the St. Paul's food pantry by helping to restock shelves, organize donated items, and bag up diapers for an annual Christmas party. Third grade serves as pantry champions and leaders during the all school food drive every fall.
Third grade also participates in the spring fundraiser supporting our sister school in Haiti. Click here to earn more about our school-wide service projects.
Everyday at Chapel, students say the St. Paul's Community Pledge.
As a member of the St. Paul's community, I pledge to be honest, to respect others, to take responsibility for my actions and words, to be kind and inclusive, and to help others do the same.
These words reinforce the St. Paul's mission and values and help students focus on the day ahead.
