The third grade at Garcia Elementary is the place to be! Education is student centered. We focus on active learning, research, hands-on activities, and extending thinking skills. Technology and using the internet are a priority. Students are learning word processing skills, Kid Pix, and Power Point presentations. Keyboarding, using software such as Math Keys, and curriculum related web sites are an integral part of technology instruction.
Some of the goals that we would like to see the students in third grade accomplish are: Have a strong respect for themselves, other students, and authority figures. Have self-discipline. Learn to be responsible. Learn to use time effectively, develop organizational skills, and become confident learners.
