3RD GRADE
The 3rd grade experience at Holy Trinity is outstanding. Students, nearing the end of their Lower School years, continue to refine core academic skills while purposefully evolving into more independent and collaborative learners - characteristics that prepare them for their Intermediate School years.

  • Emphasis on novels, vocabulary development, short stories, and poetry

  • Math concepts such as fractions, decimals, and geometry
  • The study of Ancient Rome, US History, map skills/geography, and market economics
  • STEMscopes as well as the properties of matter, energy, forces and work, Earth’s surface, people and resources, water and weather, space, ecosystems and interactions, and living things
