Join us for Park's Family Math Night on Thursday, January 24 from 6–8 p.m. in the cafeteria. The evening offers an opportunity for parents to experience math through the eyes of their Lower Schooler. The first half of the program will invite families to play a variety of games from across grade levels that help students make sense of mathematical ideas. The second half of the evening will include a choice of breakout sessions for parents to hear directly from faculty members with talks and demonstrations on a variety of topics.
6 p.m. Families will gather in the cafeteria and play a variety of math games that are used in classrooms as part of math instruction. Pizza and drinks available (please RSVP so we can plan accordingly!).
6:45 p.m. Parents move to the cafeteria annex for welcome, general address, and orientation to the sessions offered. Children remain in cafeteria with Extended Day childcare while parents attend sessions.
