HES Holds Math Night

Everything added up to a great evening of fun and fellowship on April 4 at HES’s second annual Math Night.

More than 80 students attended, many of them bringing their entire family with them to enjoy the evening. Parents looked on, or participated with their children, as students reviewed measurement skills, multiplication, division, fractions, regrouping, and a variety of math tasks.

As students entered the building their first stop was “Estimation Station” where they put their talents to work estimating treats in containers for each grade level. Nine Math stations were set up in classrooms throughout the building as well as in the library. More than 30 teachers participated in the evening that was coordinated by Mrs. Pamela Reagan and Mrs. Jacklyn Eubanks.

HES students contribute to Math Night

Students made contributions to Math Night, using their learned skills to enhance the evening with family and friends. Third graders in Art class made the banners hanging in the hallway. Each student selected one math symbol, a pattern, word, and shape to highlight on his or her banner. “We have enjoyed incorporating the Common Core principles into our Art lessons,” said Art teacher Mary Marcantel. First-grade students wrote and illustrated a story with an imaginary component to include fantasy writing. Second-grade students included their knowledge of social studies to create celebration pictures showing their classmates together.
