January is Math Month!

Hemlock and Ling Elementaries are proud to announce that this January, we will be participating in our SIXTH ANNUAL SCHOOL-WIDE MATH MONTH!

Math Month will kick off on Monday, January 11th! Each grade level will be practicing their math challenge all month long and grade level teams will be competing for the title of Hemlock’s Math MVPs! Throughout the month of January, students will be encouraged to practice their math skills at home and during their free time. Students will also be encouraged to recognize why math is important in all jobs and we will be sharing/displaying their findings to the rest of the school!

Pump up your child for Math Month and talk to them about why math is important in your everyday activities!

Fun activities/events this month to promote math:

  • Dress Up days!

  • Thursday, Jan. 14th: Wear clothes with numbers on them!

  • Thursday, Jan. 21st: Wear exercise (comfy) clothes to school!

  • Thursday, Jan. 28th: Grade levels will decide on a grade-level color to wear!
