Title I Family Night at NOE!

NOE students and their families are invited to attend our Title I Reading and Math Game Night. It will be held on Thursday, March 16th, from 5:30 until 6:30 PM at North Ohio Elementary School.

A pizza dinner will be provided, beginning at 5:30. After dinner, you will have time to try out some Math and Reading games with your child. Once you have sampled the games, you and your child can choose your favorites and we will order one for you, free of charge. The game will be delivered to school at a later date, and sent home with your child. We are looking forward to sharing these learning games with you so that your child can have a fun way to practice reading and math at home.

You will be getting an invitation sent home with your child soon. Please make sure that you RSVP and let us know if you are able to attend. We hope that you will be able to join us for our Reading and Math Game Night!
