Community-School Partnership

Students and family work on a project

Math games, spelling challengesand puzzles made Family Math/ELA Night feel like fun, but the participants were learning how to work together at home on schoolwork. Parents and students joined together at Ann MacArthur Primary School and Bayville Primary School where they traveled through stations set up with various mathematical and English language arts activities. Advice on how to help their children with the skills needed to complete the tasks was shared and each family left with some new activities to engage in with their children.

“Enhancing the school community partnership is always a priority,” Bayville Elementary School Assistant Principal Dorothy McManus said. “Our goal is to support parents so they can help children succeed at home, and therefore be more successful in school.”
