On Wednesday, April 8th beginning at 6:15 p.m. Malletts Bay School will sponsor a unique celebration of mathematics, open to the entire community. Entitled “Math and Cookies,” the evening is billed as “a deliciously smart family night.” Participants will learn how community members use math in their occupations. Presenters include Eric Nelson of Eye and I Glass; Leah Chiarmonte of the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences; computer scientist Tom Bacon; and Sean Parker, meteorologist for local station Fox 44. In addition to the presentations, participants will be able to view displays including “math and quilting” by Town Clerk Karen Richard; “rising nutrient levels in Malletts Bay” by Karen Bates; “math and legos” by Rachel and Mason Alling; and many student displays. The gymnasium will be filled with activities led by fifth grade students who are part of the school’s “Fuel Up to Play 60” student wellness team. Of course, there will be cookies!
This unique event is sponsored by the Malletts Bay School’s “School-Community Council” and the Title I program. To RSVP, please visit the Malletts Bay School home page at http://www.csdvt.org/mbs or call us at 264-5900.
