3-206 | Teacher: Mr. Joseph Curro | jcurro@sfaacademy.org

In 3rd grade, students transition from the primary to intermediate grades. The work becomes more challenging as the students learn to take more responsibility for their work, their words, and their actions. I teach using a variety of strategies in order to reach each individual student. Students learn best when they are active participants in their education so I develop lesson plans in all subject areas that encourage students to ask questions, search for answers, and persevere through problem solving. Lessons are enhanced through daily use of our SMART Board and the incorporation of videos, songs, on-line academic programs, and interactive activities. Read More About the 3rd Grade Curriculum

Good afternoon SFACA Families,

I hope this email finds you all safe and well and that you have been able to have some relaxation this summer. Summertime seems to go faster every year.

We are very much looking forward to our full in-person academy opening on September 8th, 2021. As you know, each new school year is an opportunity for us to improve as educators so that our students can reap the benefits of our growth. With that in mind, we will work this year to give our students the best of ourselves. We want them to be filled with hope, joy, comfort, and the love of learning throughout this new school year.
