Family Math Night draws parents, children, and educators from Jackson County together to practice strategies for learning through games. The next event, set for Thursday, April 18, will focus on LEGOs and will feature a hot dog cookout.

Parents planning to join their children and Jackson County School System teachers for the next installment of Family Math Night are asked to register by noon the day of the event, Thursday, April 18.

The session will begin at 5 p.m. at JCSS’s 441 Gordon Street Center in Jefferson and will feature a hot-dog-and-ice-cream supper. Attendance at previous sessions is not required, and all are welcome.

The focus of math strategies this month will be LEGO building blocks, and while the fun-and-games are planned for children in kindergarten through eighth-grade, free childcare is offered for children in pre-K and younger.

Dr. Katie Warwick, JCSS math curriculum coordinator, said the program will conclude next month with a celebration set for May 9.

Crescent Moon Farm is this month’s sponsor, joining previous sponsors that include the Braselton Rotary Club, Chick-fil-A Braselton, Zaxby’s of Braselton, Little Caesar’s Pizza, and Jefferson Dairy Queen. The January “soup-er supper” was prepared by members of the JCSS Teaching & Learning staff.

Organizers ask that those planning to attend the April 18 event reserve a spot to ensure adequate food and materials are available. Parents can register online at bit.ly/JCSS_FMN7 or notify Dr. Warwick by phone at 706-367-5151, ext. 17138, or email to kwarwick@jcss.us.

The names of the adults attending, the number of children attending, and the grade level of the children or ages of pre-schoolers are requested.

The Jackson County School System serves approximately 8,000 students in Pre-K through 12th grade at 10 schools across the county.
