Welcome to 3rd Grade

The THIRD GRADE teachers are excited to work with your child this year. We want to make learning fun and enjoyable. Third grade is a BIG transition year and we want to make it as smooth as possible.

Third graders are required to take their first BIG standardized test (Georgia Milestones). Students are required to pass the reading portion of the test as well as reading, language, math and science or social studies in the classroom in order to advance to fourth grade.

Attendance is extremely important at this grade level. If students are not here, tardy, or check out, we cannot teach them. We understand that emergencies happen and if that is the case, we will work with your child on getting them caught up.

Please encourage your child to listen and follow directions, to be kind to others, and to do their best every day.

Please read with your child every night. Reading builds important foundation skills and introduces vocabulary.

Please work with your child on addition and subtraction facts. If they are ready they can also practice multiplication, which is a big unit in math. Students are required to know their multiplication facts through 100 before fourth grade.

We have a parent resource center located in the Media Center. It has magazines with helpful tips for parents (and test tips)!  They are available in Spanish and English. All resources are located in the BES Media center!
