During 3rd grade, students will venture to the Burke Museum to learn about the First Americans, as well as Seattle Children's Theatre and The Center for Wooden Boats. Children will also volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank at Christmastime. This is the first year that students will be paired with Pre-K Reading Buddies for weekly reading and activities. This benefits both grades of students in modeling of reading fluency, fostering leadership and improving confidence. Third grade also partners with the 8th graders every other week for Math Buddies.
