Gaining academic confidence and completing assignments independently is what children and teachers strive towards in third grade at De Chantal. During each school day, teachers work closely with each student to ensure they master fundamentals in reading and mathematics while at the same time using their previously acquired skills to further their knowledge in Science and Social Studies. Daily lessons and practice in Spelling, Reading, Writing and Mathematics offer the children and teachers time to work together and individually. Religion is the foundation for each day beginning with prayers. Third Grade students study Catholic Traditions related to the Liturgical Calendar and as competent readers, will read scripture at many Masses throughout the school year.
