Winter Street families gather for Math Night

Winter Street Elementary School held Math Night at the school Nov. 6.

Parents were introduced to an at-home math program that they can work on with their children. The program was put together by teachers to build on skills that students are learning in the classroom.

While at Math Night, students and parents were given the opportunity to learn and play many of the games in the program while spending quality time with their children. Families also had the opportunity to pick from several prizes that were given out to those who attended.
