St. Christopher Catholic School will be hosting its first ESSO Family Math Night on Wednesday, February 20, 2008 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m at the school, 2843 CKSO Road. There will be two math programs provided during the evening; one for students in JK, SK, and Grade 1 and another for students in Grades 2 to 6. |
ESSO Family Math Night is an initiative operating out of the Faculty of Education at the University of Western Ontario. Its goal is to assist parents and families who would like to help their children experience success in math.
Family Math sessions educate parents to work with their children in order to develop positive attitudes towards mathematics. Parents and children attend the Family Math Night together and are both actively involved in doing mathematics. Teachers facilitate the sessions, introducing the games and activities and provide assistance with the completion of the tasks. Family Math Night is designed to reinforce math concepts while fostering an enjoyment of mathematics in a non-threatening and entertaining environment.
Sudbury Catholic Schools Director of Education, Catherine McCullough and Board Vice-chair Paula Peroni will be in attendance.
