Family Math Night

Mark your Calendars for FAMILY MATH NIGHT

Thursday, Feb. 6th from 6pm-7:30

Do you sometimes have difficulty recognizing the math in your child’s homework because it is taught differently now? Think about how the world has changed since you were in school. Math looks different because the world is different.

Join us to see how your child is learning "Hands-On" with a fun night of math games, brainteasers, estimation and problem solving strategies. “The math our children are learning today is the math they will need for tomorrow’s world”.

There will be many opportunities to win raffles prizes throughout the night!
