The Regional Office of Education was awarded a $2500 grant from the Community Foundation of the Quincy Area. The grant will be used to purchase books to give to families of children, birth to two, during a home visit from the nurses at the Adams County Health Department. Having books at home supports families as they start their child on the path to literacy and a lifelong love of reading.
The Regional Office of Education is partnering with Commit to the Core and Hy-Vee to offer a seven-week Math Blast program for students. Each week from September 20th to November 17th, students in kindergarten through sixth grade can stop in at either Hy-Vee location in Quincy to take part in a math challenge. Students will have the opportunity to solve a series of math problems appropriate for their grade level. The problems will be based on real-life situations shoppers might encounter while at the grocery store. Students who participate will be eligible to win a prize. For additional information regarding the Math Blast, please contact the Regional Office of Education at 217-277-208 or view the promotional flyer.
Family Fun Math Nights
The Fall Family Fun Math Nights at local stores were a success for students and their families. A total of nearly 600 students solved math problems at five Family Fun Math Nights held in Adams and Pike Counties in September. Students were accompanied and guided by their parents at local County Market and Hy-Vee stores. In some cases the whole family participated. Over 99% of the responding parents said that their child was able to practice real-life math at the event and that they could continue to apply math skills in future shopping trips, supporting their child's education. Local grocery stores donated more than $1300.00 to participating schools, classrooms, and students. The Family Fun Math Nights were sponsored by the Regional Office of Education for Adams / Pike Counties, QFT's Commit to the Core Innovation Fund Grant, participating local schools and grocery stores. Congratulations to all the students and their families!
