Third grade is a transition grade. Students begin the lifelong process of reading to learn, as opposed to learning to read.
Learning can be fun in a structured and loving environment. Subjects taught include: mathematics, language, spelling, Bible, American history and geography, health, science, reading, and cursive writing.
Special projects include: a Native American project, book reports, animal notebook, president report, holiday crafts, and a science poster.
In addition to the daily academics, third graders have three major field trips. Students have an opportunity for a hands-on experience in archaeology at Historic Spanish Point. Also, third graders attend the Venice Symphony children’s concert and a play.
VCS also provides classes in computer, art, music, Spanish, and physical education. Attendance at chapel once a week helps to round out the spiritual training offered at VCS.

It has been a privilege and joy for me to serve the Lord in Christian education. I started teaching in 2003 shortly after graduating with my B.A. in elementary education from Ambassador Baptist College. I met my husband while studying there. We have two boys, Micaiah and Benjamin. I truly appreciate the Christian focus of the curriculum we use here at Venice Christian. I also appreciate the academic excellence this curriculum affords. Each child is given the best tools for success with the desire to see them use their talents to serve the Lord. My daily prayer is one of thankfulness for the opportunity to serve the families here.
