In Third Grade our focus is aimed at Biblical teachings through the Old and New Testaments. By weaving together John Wesley's theology, music, small group discussions, Bible stories, and creative activities we create a spiritual environment rooted in wisdom, faith, and friendship.

By utilizing insightful core truths like identity, connection, restoration, and compassion children are able to grow in their faith by loving God, loving life, and loving others.

Sunday School

On Sunday mornings Third Grade partners with Orange's faith based curriculum, 252 Kids. However, Chapelwood Children modifies activities that coach children in their Biblical studies. By the end of their Third Grade year children are able to locate and read scripture as well as recite all 66 Books of the Bible! 

Third Grade is located in LC230-231. These classrooms are located above the administrative offices of the Chapelwood School for Young Children. These classrooms can be reached via the hallway located on the second floor of the Children's Building or the stairwell near the day school offices. To begin the 9:45 a.m. Discipleship/Worship Hour the children will gather in the Children's Basement for a fun and engaging time of fellowship and worship. They will then head to their classroom for small group engagement.
