Recently Simon Intermediate School held its fourth annual Family Math Night organized by sixth-grade mathematics teacher Brandy Milburn, and fifth-grade mathematics teacher and parent coordinator Kara Jones.
This year’s theme was "Simon’s Math Stars." Dozens of families participated this year. During Family Math Night, students and their families enjoyed refreshments and several different math games related to what they are studying in class.
The event is a way for teachers, students, and their families to connect. Throughout the night, comments were made by students and parents such as, "I really enjoyed learning new ways to teach my child math," "This is an awesome way to learn math," and "The kids seemed to enjoy the ‘game’ of learning."
Door prizes were given away throughout the evening, and goody bags with a selection of math games were given to each family.
