Third Grade

Our Mission

As part of our third grade curriculum here at North Mahaska, students will be challenged to achieve reading and math proficiency while adhering to the Iowa Common Core standards. Students are given opportunity to use a variety of resources such as the library, iPads, classroom computers, and independent keyboarding time. Parents are kept informed about classroom happenings through weekly newsletters, emails, and personal notes. This encourages success for students at home as well as within the school environment.
