Thank you to all that joined us for the Coffee and Math Morning on Monday. The PTO provided the coffee and the students showed off amazing math skills! Students from all grade levels demonstrated a variety of math games, for example, kindergarten – Toss the Chips, first grade – The Penny Jar Game, second grade – Capture 5, third grade – Array Capture with double dice, fourth grade – Kingdom of Gallon and fifth grade – Spinning Bingo. We hope you enjoyed interacting and seeing the students in action. Mr. Dommer and Mrs. Morris also appreciate all the feedback on the new math report card. We look forward to helping host more morning events in the future!- Shannon & London
