On Tuesday, October 8th, the Robert Frost Middle School hosted Family Math Night, which was attended by more than 250 middle school family members! Dr. Andrew Chen was the special guest. He addressed the audience with information about how American students fare in mathematics compared to the rest of world, and then turned to families to work together to solve some interesting math problems. Students and parents came away from the evening with a renewed sense of the importance of math in our daily lives, and acceptance that the solutions do not always come easily… Struggling through the process can be as significant as finding the right answer!
On Saturday, September 14th, the Robert Frost Middle School Staff and PTO sponsored our 3rd Annual “Welcome Back BBQ” from 10:30-1:00. The event was a huge success. Parent s and children were invited to take part in five activities- basketball free throw contest; Dance, Dance Revolution; photo booth; face painting; and “Accessing the PowerSchool Parent Portal” which included a parent tutorial in the computer lab! There was also a free interactive karate demonstration from Premier Martial Arts School (Haverhill, MA). The BBQ lunch was delicious. This annual event gives staff and parents an opportunity to kick off the school year on a positive note for our children.
