Welcome to Third Grade! My name is Mrs. Galipault. I have taught for the last eleven years in elementary and middle school classrooms. Third grade is by far my favorite grade to teach! This will be my sixth year teaching at St. Bridget School. I am so thankful to be a part of this wonderful and supportive community. When I’m not at SBS, some of my favorite things include reading, drawing, painting, crafting, going on trips with my husband and spending time with my dogs Dexter and Gracie. I also love watching baseball (Go Red Sox!) and going to the movies.
Third grade is such a wonderful year and the third grade students are very excited to learn! We cover so much in faith while we prepare for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. We also cover many topics in math including multiplying and dividing big numbers, fractions and measurement. The students also look forward to learning and practicing their cursive letters and writing. Throughout the year in third grade, we get to read stories about and learn interesting things from different cultures all around the world. We also learn how to research topics and create simple presentations. There is always something exciting going on in third grade!
