Brainetics Math Assembly - Please join us!
We are pleased to be able to share with you Mike Byster and his amazing and unique Brainetics learning program to our students on February 19, 2020 at 8:45 - 9:25 AM.
Mike’s presentations are formed to cultivate the parent/teacher/student learning triad. We are encouraging you to attend because Mike Byster is in fact a genius, but he wasn’t born a genius. He struggled in school, just just like many kids do. He had amazing parents who encouraged him to find fun ways to learn that worked for him. Kids get their information from school, the internet and many outside places, but they learn HOW to learn at home.
It is because his parents were so involved in his education that he KNOWS the value of parents being at his presentations. This presentation will excite your child, teach them new things and give them confidence. We want you to be there to share in their excitement and to be able to support, understand and nourish that excitement back home.
Mike has created a system for solving complex math problems by using a series of patterns and short-cuts that demystify how numbers work. He also teaches how parents and children can work together to greatly improve the child's memory and focus. You can learn more about Mike and the Brainetics program at www.Braineticsed.com and www.mikebyster.com.
Mike and his Brainetics program were put to the test on ABC’s 20/20 news program. He also won the title of “Superhuman” this summer on Fox’s TV show, “Superhuman”!
Mike receives thousands of letters from parents every year stating that the hour they spent at the show has positively impacted the way they work with their children! This is an educational presentation. Please let the teacher know you will be joining us by signing and returning your RSVP. Mike looks forward to an AMAZING presentation with you and your child!
