Math Day at Barbers Point Elementary School
Math Day at our school is celebrated in a number of different ways. Thanks to the efforts of Ms. Rita Rodgers, a former 5th grade teacher at our school, Math Day is an annual event for students and staff at Barbers Point today. During one year, the staff and students designed a patchwork quilt stretching 100 square feet. Each member contributed a 5 inch square of a scene depicting some aspect of life at BPES.
During another year, we scored 100 baskets as each of our 57O+ students and staff was allowed one shot at the hoop. The hoop shoot followed a morning full of math experiences for the students.
On Tuesday, February 13,1996, our entire school participated in a variety of Math Day Activities ranging from dart board math to weights and measurements and a quite a few other math experiences. In the afternoon, our staff and students read 100 books to end the day.
In 1995, our entire school celebrated the 100th day by forming the numeral 100 on our playground. Can you imagine the sight of 490+ people to color in the number 100? Truly a sight to see! A helicopter flying overhead was able to capture the moment with a fantastic photo of our staff and students
Again, on January 28, 2008, our staff and students lined up for a repeat performance to form the numeral 100. The photo was captured by a helicopter flying overhead.
