Parent Math Night with Greg Tang!
Have you ever wanted to learn more about how your child explores math and numbers in school? Have you ever wondered, why do they teach math differently than when I was in school?
This is an amazing opportunity for parents to learn from one of the same individuals who has provided professional development to our teachers and district leadership. He also provided a training session to parents last year. Please take an hour of your time to learn from Greg Tang. You'll learn about how we teach math at school AND how you can support your students at home.
