Family math nights add up to success
In an effort to build an understanding of teaching math both at school and in the home, Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools is pleased to provide Family Math Nights.
These school-specific evenings first begin with an information session, and end with interactive stations for families to explore, all centred around developing understanding of concepts versus memorization skills. These sessions provide an opportunity to engage in math with a hands-on approach and ask questions to our numeracy experts.
Feedback from parents at other schools has shown that these Family Math Nights have a positive impact on student success.
Please note the upcoming Family Math Nights:

- Holy Family School (Grades 1-5) – February 1 at 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
