Annual Math Festival Brings Families Together for Events on Sept. 10 and 24


Elementary and junior high school students, ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade, will showcase their math skills through a variety of different formats at this year’s district-wide Family Math Festivals. Families are encouraged to attend.


Two separate festivals will be held on a pair of Tuesday evenings in September. Hermosa Elementary will host ALSD’s east-side schools on Tuesday, Sept. 10, while Jasper Elementary will be the site of the festival for the district’s west-side schools on Tuesday, Sept. 24.


“These events are fun for the whole family, with hands-on math activities for all ages,” said Gwen Marich, teacher on special assignment for math. “Over the past two years, we have had great success with this community event centered around making math engaging and entertaining for all; everyone from kindergartners to adults have been hooked by an appropriately challenging game or puzzle they are determined to solve.”


Families have the opportunity to participate in challenging math problems and can see the work of students from Hermosa Elementary, Banyan Elementary, Deer Canyon Elementary, Victoria Groves Elementary and Vineyard Junior High School at Hermosa on Sept. 10.


The work of students from Alta Loma Elementary, Carnelian Elementary, Stork Elementary, Jasper Elementary and Alta Loma Junior High will be on display at Jasper on Sept. 24.


Both festivals run from 6:30-8 p.m.


More information is available at each school.
