March 2, 2023 -- Classrooms were bustling with engagement and excitement at Hooper Avenue Elementary School on Wednesday night as families came together for an evening of fun learning activities.
Families selected from hands-on curricular sessions led by 33 staff members that included physical education, art, music, SEL, reading, writing, math, and STEM activities.
Students and their families created Harry Potter invisible ink Marauder Maps, constructed cat bandit contraptions, built lava lamps, mimicked cross-country skiing together, created Gyotaku prints, and had s’more fun around the campfire.
“A curriculum night is an evening of exploration and interactive activities that allow families to learn side by side," said Christine Manna, supervisor at the school. She continued, "Parental involvement enhances academic performance and nourishes family bonds.”
That was certainly the case on Wednesday night seeing the miles of smiles from all families in attendance at the event.
