Biloxi Public Schools tonight will present a district-wide Family
Math Night at each elementary school in the district.
The gathering, part of the district's on-going initiative to engage parents in the education process, will provide fun math activities and games
for the entire family.
Family members will be able to enjoy activities such as pasta
patterns, animal hop addition, time cake walk, and other fun
ways to learn math with your children at home.
Times will vary at each school. For specific information about
your child's school, contact the school office or visit your school’s web page.
