Flyer: PTSA Parent Ed Talk – Communicating with Teens
6:30-7:15pm PTSA Meeting, 7:30-8:30pm CPM Math Night – Room 30A (come to one or both!)
Come and learn how to support your student in math at our new CPM math curriculum night. Remember when our parents used to complain about “New” math? Well now it is our turn to wine that they just don’t teach math the way they used to. Fortunately, the PTSA has a solution. Our Vice Principal and former math department chair, Kiran Grewal, will lead our CPM Math Night. John McGowan, our Teacher Rep for PTSA, along with some of his colleagues will be supporting Mrs. Grewal to provide an overview of how the CPM curriculum works, how you can best support your student and to answer your questions. Look forward to seeing you there!
