Free movie, math literacy event, and family night part of festivities
A Jurassic event was unleased at Coalmont Elementary School on Monday, when the Dino-mite Book Fair roared into the school bringing with it a weeklong celebration that concludes Friday evening with a free movie, math literacy event, and family book fair night.
Students will be visiting the book fair throughout the week, but Friday night, March 8, from 5 p.m. until 7:30 p.m., is reserved for family night and special family events, according to Donna Beth Nolan, book fair coordinator and Beta Club advisor.
In addition to the book fair on Friday evening, there will be a math literacy evening featuring a check-in estimation station, Mammoth Multiplication for grades 3-8, and an equations obstacle course designed with grade-appropriate equations and number operation activities for all elementary grades and ages. K-2 students and their families can enjoy a numbers and operations game that is appropriate and challenging for their mathematical minds.
Two free movies will be offered to students – “The Land Before Time” for younger viewers and “Jurassic Park,” the original, special edition (edited for school viewers).
Concessions, sponsored by the CES Junior Beta Club, will be available during the movie, and there will be door prizes during the event.
