Churchill Road Elementary school held a Strategy Game Night for Grades K-6 the evening of Thursday, April 12. More than 180 students, their parents and siblings filled the cafeteria and played over 30 different strategy games. The students had a great time using their problem-solving abilities and mathematical reasoning skills while interacting with their parents and friends. This evening was organized by Cheryl Bamdad, CRS Math Lead Teacher, and Corinne Almquist, Advanced Academics Resource teacher. Students enjoyed the opportunity to play with the more than 20 Churchill Road teachers who helped with the event as well.
