Third Grade Philosophy
A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes
This is an exciting time in the life of your child! Third grade is an important year as it forms the bridge between the primary and intermediate levels of the elementary experience. Third graders work on becoming confident, responsible and independent learners. At Tualatin Valley Academy we strive to create a community in which students are encouraged to develop to their fullest potential spiritually, mentally, socially and physically. My classroom door is always open. Feel free to stop in and take a look. Parents are always welcome!
