Here at Ponderosa we believe math matters! It is my mission to help all students see math can be fun and make sense! To help accomplish this, I started Family Math Nights here at Ponderosa five years ago. With help from several awesome Ponderosa teachers and staff as well as funding from The Boyd County Foundation For Children and Marathon, Family Math Nights have been a huge success bringing hundreds out for a night of fun and learning! Not only do families get to play fun hands-on games that reinforce critical math concepts, we also give away prizes and learning-themed Ponderosa T-shirts!
Last year we added reading and science to the evening and we all had a blast! Student athletes from Boyd County High School assisted with everything from set-up to clean-up, spreading the message to students that learning is cool! We can't wait to team up with them again for another great family math night this year! We hope to see you there!
Ponderosa Family Math Night has even been featured in the Daily Independent several years in a row. Through that exposure I have helped other school districts learn how to begin their own family math nights!
