Welcome to Third Grade. This year will be a year of much growth. Your child will learn new concepts and new skills. Our year is highlighted by daily power walking at 7:45 every morning rain or shine starting the second day of school. Please make sure your child comes dressed appropriately for the weather. Third graders also learn many Hebrew songs and dances and perform multiple times during the year.
There is no charge and no sign up sheet. It is optional and should be attended when your child feels he or she needs extra help.
