The Annual Literacy and Math Night at Eastern Greenbrier Middle School (EGMS) was held Tuesday, Mar. 15. This year’s theme was centered on the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” book series by Jeff Kinney.
Students, parents, and staff who attended the event rotated through various stations including estimating; measuring; designing covers of a book; participating in a trivia game; and making slime. All students earned “Mom Bucks” (referenced in the book series) throughout the night to be entered into drawings for various prizes such as books and blank diaries.
The annual literacy and math night is sponsored by the EGMS National Network of Partnership of Schools (NNPS) Action Team for Partnerships, comprised of parents, business partners, teachers, school administrators, and student representatives. The Action Team extends special thanks to Mike Wyatt of Greenbrier Photography for graciously donating use of a photo booth for the event and to McDonald’s for donating drinks.
Established at John Hopkins University in 1996, NNPS invites schools, districts, states, and organizations to join together and use research-based approaches to organize and sustain excellent programs of family and community involvement that will increase student success in school.
