Third Grade

What will your third grader learn about this year?

From early childhood through graduation, the children of Fairfax County Public Schools grow as learners through the development of knowledge and skills within and across the disciplines. In order to prepare all students to thrive in their rapidly changing and interconnected world, the larger community of FCPS collaborated in 2014 to envision 21st century outcomes for all students, which are expressed in the FCPS Portrait of a Graduate. Through meaningful learning experiences and purposeful assessment, FCPS learners grow as communicators, collaborators, creative and critical thinkers, global and ethical citizens, and goal-directed and resilient individuals.
