Math Facts 2021
Updated as of 8/25/2021
The owner of Math Facts Scholars contacted our school coordinator and stated she is holding off on starting the program this year at all of the schools. She sited small business concerns for her and the cost of printing the workbooks and ordering the trophies. She is not willing to have the program at smaller schools, unless her larger public schools get involved to help off-set the cost. She will reassess this decision in 6 weeks.

Dear Immacolata Families,
As we prepare to return to school this fall, we are also hoping to reinstate some extracurricular activities that we enjoyed pre-Covid. Specifically, the Math FactsScholars program is a parent and volunteer run program that offers students an opportunity after school to Practice, Practice, Practice their math skills. Ultimately, the program works with students to master basic math skills including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. The program is targeted for elementary aged students as young as Kindergarten.
The program creates an atmosphere where students experience positive energy, enthusiasm and a victory in achieving their academic goals. Students are encouraged to practice daily in their workbooks, and show up ready to test! Students are rewarded with smarties and upon completion of their level, receive a medal!
The Math Facts Scholars program relies solely on parent/volunteer support. Immacolata has been fortunate to have active support over the years but we are seeking additional volunteers to ensure we can continue to provide this enrichment opportunity to our students.
Specifically, we are looking for 2 co-chairs to support the program this upcoming calendar year. The co-chairs will be trained this year to transition to full-time helpers for the next school year. In addition to the co-chairs, we will be seeking parent volunteers to help grade, support the KD table, monitor the hallway, and float as needed to ensure the program runs smoothly. Volunteers can change week to week, we will simply take all of the support we can get. If you are interested in supporting the math facts program as a volunteer or have an interest in co-chairing the program please reach out to Julie Harrison (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Claire Boevingloh (email@example.com)

Parent participation is required in this program. Parents help the program to run smoothly by working together to moderate the students, time the tests, copy tests, donate supplies, grade the tests and facilitate an environment that promotes positive learning.
The volunteer schedule is created and distributed at the beginning of each semester, therefore parents know when they are scheduled to volunteer and can make arrangements. Typically, parents volunteer twice per month.
