Math/Literacy Nights Oct. 11 & 18

Elementary School parents are invited to attend one of two Pelham Public Schools Parent Math/Literacy Nights on Thursday, October 11 (Gr. K-2) at Siwanoy School and Thursday, October 18 (Gr. 3-5) at Colonial School. Each event will run from 7-8:15 pm.

At both events, Dr. Maria Thompson, director of humanities, Julie Liebersohn, reading teacher and K-5 literacy coordinator, Dr. Thomas Callahan director of K-12 math and science and Beth Finkelstein, elementary math staff developer, will provide parents with grade-specific tips to help students with reading, writing and math at home.

“These events are great opportunities to learn about how reading, writing  and math are taught in our schools and the progress we have made in creating common units of study and experiences for students,” said Dr. Thompson. “This is a window into the curriculum that is taught in the classroom every day.”

Parents are asked to RSVP by sending an email to  or that specifies which event and how many adults will be attending.

This is an adult only event.
