3rd Grade

Third grade is an exciting year at Mountain View! Students transition from being dependent to independent learners. In all content areas, students work collaboratively on projects and we often bring in technology to enhance their learning. One special piece of third grade is learning cursive. We look forward to working with you and your family to make your third graders year a productive and fun one!

**We will update our website with information as we receive it from the district.**


Remote Learning 

This year for remote learning, Adams 12 will be using a platform called Schoology.  Every student in grades k-12 will be using this platform to provide continuity for families across the district.  Below you can click on the link to find your child's dashboard.  On the dashboard, you will need to click on the "Schoology" button.

Daily Learning Schedule

Please note that the school day starts at 8:05am and esynchronous learning ends at 1:00pm Monday through Friday. Students are expected to be present during the synchronous (live) learning times and working independently or with a small group during asynchronous learning time each day to be considered present. We recommend making sure your child logs into the live Zoom link for each day by 8:00a.m. to ensure that all technology is working appropriately. 

Teachers will be available through email and Remind for questions, clarifications, and extra support during their posted office hours.  If you would like to schedule a video call during a teacher's office hours please send an email to request a time.   

Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions.
