Learn more about Third Street School.

Academics

Third Street School incorporates a curriculum focused on creating lifelong learners for our K-2 students. For Math, we use Envision 2.0 and the Journey's Program for Language Arts. All of our classes incorporate the Fundations phonics program into their daily lessons. Each student is equipped with their own personal iPad, which serves as an extension to both our Math and Language Arts text. We use a program called eSpark for both, which allows each student to work at their own independent level. Students receive at least 90 minutes of language arts instruction per day and at least 60 minutes of math. They also receive instruction in social studies, with a focus on civics and citizenship and science. Music, Art, Physical Education, Media, and Spanish are also offered to each of our students.

Programs

Before school students can participate in our breakfast program. Also, Little Seaters is a community organization that has our students before and after school for extra time if the families need it.

Teachers

This year our staff continued to improve their knowledge on the use of the fundations program. The staff also learned how to use the Genesis system to submit lesson plans and the Employee Portal portion of Genesis to log PD and complete observations. Staff members are also encouraged to attend outside professional development opportunities that relate to their specific field. We have formed a collaborative relationship with our neighbors at the Harmony Township School. Our faculty meetings mostly consist of vertical collaboration across the grade levels because our small size limits who they can collaborate with in the building. Staff took part in curriculum writing over the summer to enhance our math curriculum as well. Some staff professional development includes: Techspo, Kindergarten seminar, RTI collaboration with the schools in our cluster.

Supports

Third Street School offers speech for our ELL students as well as other students with speech related disabilities. We bring in OT and PT services that work with our students based on individual needs. Response to Intervention programs are built into the schedule, and our students who struggle the most and qualify receive resource room services as well. The school works with the local community center to provide tutors for those students who need/want it. The building principal has the I&RS team meet throughout the year to discuss and evaluate those students who need academic or emotional support, including those students with behavior issues. Plans are then developed to ensure each student has the chance to be successful.

Health

Breakfast and lunch programs are offered and the school nurse provides lessons on hand washing and other related topics that support good personal hygiene. Each student participates in a physical education class three times a week and has one half hour of recess per day.

Parents

At Third Street School we have parents involved in the PTO and offer the school a few programs a year such as the book fair. Third Street had a canned food drive where each class was encouraged to collect at least 100 cans. We also participated with the Marines and Toys for Tots around the holidays. Our district offers a Parent Portal for students to view their report cards through our grading system, which is Genesis.

Technology

Technology is incorporated into the curriculum daily. As part of our center-based instructional philosophy students use Ipads that have built in programs to enhance student learning, specifically in math and language arts. Third Street school is on a 1 to 1 system with iPads, meaning each student has their own device. Classes use the computer lab frequently and once a week the students have 40Â minutes of media, which incorporates the various aspects of technology and STEM activities. Each classroom has a built in SmartBoard and we have two ViewSonic boards in the building that offer a variety of student based activities.

More

Our school day starts at 8:10am and ends at 2:25pm. Students receive a 30 minute lunch and 30 minutes of recess a day. Every day the students are exposed to some type of "special"each day as well. Often times each student gets two “specials” per day. There is a minimum of 90 minutes per day dedicated to language arts and minimum 60 minutes a day dedicated to Math. The staff incorporates these activities into science and social studies as well. The "specials" we offer are Music, Media, Art, Physical Education, and Spanish. We are a walking school so there are no school supplied transportation options for our students. Third Street uses a variety of communication options including Class Dojo, school wide all calls, emails and the use of Google Classroom. There is no specific uniform but students and staff have a dress code they are expected to comply with.
