Math Day & STEM Day

Math Day

The BES PTA sponsors an amazing parent-run Math Day each year. Over 100 BES parents volunteer so that ALL BES kids are able to participate in incredibly fun math games and problem solving at a grade appropriate level.

This year’s BES PTA Math Day will be held Friday, March 4

We need volunteers!  Sign up here:  tinyURL.com/MathDay2016

Grades 2-3 will visit at 10am
K-1st at 11:20am
Grades 4-5 from 12:40pm

For those who are new to all this, Math Day is a unique and long-standing Bannockburn tradition.  Generations of PTAs, Parents and Principals have supported Math Day and its message that Math can be fun for everyone.  We fill the gym with dozens of games for all ages and ability levels; parents (grandparents, older siblings, etc.) work the tables; the children visit with their classrooms.  There are many new games this year, and in response to feedback from previous years, we’re allowing parents to choose their game stations — another reason for signing up now!

STEM Day

The BES PTA also sponsors STEM activities at BES. A team of BES teachers lead the students in a STEM project appropriate for each grade. The BES PTA funds this day with a $3,000 grant. The exact date for STEM Day 2016 is to be determined.
