Get Ready for Family Math Night!!

Check out the video on YouTube about Family Math Night!

On Thursday evening, October 12, 2017 from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. Symmes Elementary will hold an exciting event called Family Math Night! Students, parents, siblings and other relatives are invited to attend a fun-filled evening of mathematical pleasure! The intent of Family Math Night is to participate in math standards in action as we strengthen the mathematical application, problem solving, and communication skills of students through the power of family interaction. We encourage you to continue to support your child's mathematical growth through your participation in Family Math Night.

Light refresments will be served as well as the opportunity to win one of two math games: Equate or Money Bags. A special reader will be reading two engaging books during the evening that will be raffled off.

Please watch for more information to come home through back pack mail!

If you have any questions email Mrs. Wuebbolt at
