3rd Grade

Third grade students participate in all general education subjects, and have flexible grouping in both math and guided reading.

Third grade at Rock Run Elementary has integrated a unique "Star Sneetch of the Week" program into their curriculum. The emphasis is on enhancing the child's self concept.

Pineview lays the foundation on how to be a leader, and we try to build on that by giving students opportunities to find their voice. Students are given multiple opportunities to classroom, building, and community to be leaders.

Other special events in third grade include a trip to Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines and guest speakers from our community.
