Third Grade at Hilltop school is not only an exciting time in your child’s life, but also a step toward independence. As your child enters into this school year, they are now considered part of the “upper grades” of our school community. Our job as teachers is to facilitate the third graders to becoming self sufficient critical thinkers and role models for the younger students.
We have many new and exciting events to look forward to during the school year. The Multiplication Bowl, Spelling Bee, participating in Study Island Weekend Challenges, and our field trip to the Liberty Science Center are just a few of the events on the horizon.
Third graders here at Hilltop School have the opportunity to work with all grade level teachers which helps to build our sense of teamwork and third grade pride. Mrs. Cannizzaro, Mrs. DiGuilio, Mrs. Mayer, and Mrs. Gomez work collaboratively all year round to ensure a smooth school year. Each teacher focuses on a specific subject to help the students master skills needed throughout their educational careers. Some of the projects you may look forward to include writing fiction books, creating tornadoes and anemometers, developing a family crest, creating Power Point presentations, and the all important mastering of multiplication facts.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride! Third Grade is sure to be an eventful and exciting year! We look forward to working with you all!
