Mimosa Park Elementary awarded education grant
Students ad parents participate in a Parent and Child Together workshop that was funded through a River Parishes Education Initiatives grant given to Mimosa Park Elementary.
Money from the grant allowed the school to host four P.A.C.T. (Parent and Child Together) workshops. All four workshops focused on the new Common Core math standards. To accommodate parents, two workshops were held during daytime hours at Mimosa Park, while two additional workshops were held during evening hours at Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Boutte.
The teachers were able to teach parents how to solve math problems, and then assisted them in working out the problems with their children. Parents and children were provided step by step instructions along with manipulatives to use in solving problems. Refreshments and door prizes were also provided.
Surveys completed by parents aim to help Mimosa Park Elementary plan for future workshops.
