The Canfield Local School District hosted a Math Night for parents at Hilltop Elementary School, during which they were introduced to the new Bridges Curriculum Oct. 13. The Bridges Curriculum is used in the Canfield Schools for students in grades K-5. The program offers a unique blend of problem-solving and skill building.

Hilltop Elementary School Principal Joe Maroni welcomed the large crowd of parents to the program. He then introduced Shari Ann Munno, district math coach.

“Tonight you will go to the classrooms and our teachers will explain the components of the Bridges Program and answer any questions you may have,” Munno said.

Each parent was given a packet for their child’s grade level, which contained an overview for Number Corner, Bridges lessons, curriculum details and worksheets.

Each grade level rotated to three stations every 15 minutes, with a teacher in every room. The three stations were a Number Corner introduction, a hands-on activity or game from a Bridges lesson and time in the computer lab during which parents were directed to the parent resource page on the school homepage and were able to click on the different resources to see what is available to them at home.

At the end of the evening, everyone gathered back in the gym for closing remarks and to participate in a raffle.
