February 19: Family Math & Science Night
Family Math & Science Night was a huge success! We had a great turnout from parents and students. Families got to experience three different activities centered on Math & Science. We saw students build towers using sugar cubes, marshmallows, and toothpicks. We saw barbies bungee-jumping (Yes, you read correctly)! And students and parents had a great time using iPads to play fun math games!
