Publix Math Night
Where would a school be without business partners and community support? One of our partners is Publix, our local grocery store. Each year our Math contact, Mrs. Sparks arranges for Publix Math Night with teachers volunteering their time to assist the families. Children are encouraged to visit Publix with their family and work through grade appropriate word problems. After working your way through the store children can turn in their papers and receive their goodie bags and cookie. It was a special treat for me since Carson is in 1st grade and Kaile is in 3rd. Tim and I had to work throughout the store with both kids. It is such fun seeing families work through the word problems and using the math they practice each day in class. :) A huge thank you to the families that visited Publix and to Publix for allowing this annual event.
