Thurston Hosts Parent Ed Night


“All Roads Lead to Calculus/ Statistics,” a parent education event presented by Patrick J. Callahan, will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 13 in Thurston Middle School’s Black Box Theatre, 2100 Park Ave.

He was asked back because parent feedback was so positive, said Asst. Supt. Darlene Messinger.

Callahan will explain the shifts required in mathematics instruction and math pathways building up to calculus or statistics in high school.

Parents attending will learn about the changes in Common Core State Standards for math.
