We Love Teaching


  • It is such a pleasure to welcome your child to 3rd grade! This year, he/she will experience many new and exciting educational experiences. Third grade brings many changes; your child will read more challenging texts, think critically, and begin to work independently. This will lead to a lifetime of successful learning. We are looking forward to making memories to last a lifetime! -Mrs. Steffen, Mrs. Moore, & Mrs. Smith

  • P2

    Mrs. Steffen is a team leader for the Positivity Project. The Positivity Project (or P2) was created in order to help students build positive relationships and increase empathy. P2 is a research-based character education program designed to teach students about character strengths. The students will spend ten minutes per day learning about the 24 strengths. They will identify their own strengths, as well as those of others, through discussions and engaging activities. 

    Here is a calendar so you know when each strength will be discussed.
