Third Grade

Mrs. Vanderheiden

Welcome to Third Grade!

Third Graders at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School are bucket fillers! Students focus on filling others' buckets with kindness throughout the year in many big and small ways. Students work hard in all classes and enjoy a rigorous curriculum.

Third Grade Field Trips

  • Oregon Theater Productions
  • Downtown Portland Tour

Religious Education

Third grade students work in the We Believe/Good News curriculum in Religion class. Students focus on strengthening their spiritual lives and practicing being Disciples of Jesus in their every day lives.

Service Projects

Third graders for the 2018-2019 school year will be focusing their efforts on collecting clothing and supplies for refugee students at Cherry Park Elementary School.


Third graders work in the computer lab and on iPads in the classroom. Sites such as ThinkCentral, ConnectEd, Khan Academy, and Google Classroom enhance learning.
