Welcome to third grade at OCES!
We pride ourselves on setting high expectations for students and creating a safe and positive learning environment.
This will be a big transition year for students. They will need to adjust to a new building and a more challenging curriculum. The expectations for responsible work habits and quality of work will increase. Students will need to study material in order to have a successful year.
Students use supplemental programs to enhance their learning such as Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, and Study Island. We strive for our third graders to enjoy learning, reach their individual potential, and experience success.
Each student will have a S.T.A.R. card which will indicate their behavior for the week. These cards will need to be signed by parents each week as a communication tool between school and home. Students will have S.T.A.R. parties each nine weeks for exhibiting positive behaviors based on The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey. Parents will also receive a weekly newsletter from teachers which will be sent home in Friday folders.
