The Patrick Springs Primary School Title I staff hosted a Family Math Night on Thursday, February 21 at the school. There were over 50 children and adults in attendance for this fun, activity-filled math celebration that was for the whole family.
The event started in the gym with a warm welcome by our Title I teacher, Amy Burnette. Then the Title I staff along with other staff members escorted the parents and other relatives to the cafeteria, where they were directed in making games, flash cards, and other activities for their child.
The staff members showed parents ideas of how to help their child with math at home. Each parent had a take-home kit with manipulatives for math activities when they were finished.
Meanwhile, in the gym, Principal Jeannie King read a math story to the students about owls and telling time. The students were then divided into grade levels and went to stations on their level where they played
math games and did math activities with staff members.
After 45 minutes of fun, students and families then went to the cafeteria where they enjoyed a snack.
School officials send special thanks to Amy Burnette, Title I teacher, Diane Rorrer and Teresa Havens, Title I teacher assistants, for planning this wonderful event that encourages math. PSPS offers a big thanks to all of its staff members who came to share their math games and activities with our students and families. Also, thanks to the Title I Advisory Board who helped with planning this fun night and also parents, Laurie Fulcher and Michelle Lawrence, who prepared the snacks for everyone.
