Students in 3rd grade will be taking IREAD-3, a state assessment that measures foundational reading standards. More information will be passed along to families as the school year goes on, but you may click on the IREAD3 link to the left for more information.
Also, you may click on the 3rd grade links to view our essential skills for both math and language arts. Essential skills are what students should master before entering 4th grade.
