Free Math, Reading Program Starts Saturday in Teaneck
Program founded by town's school board president.
A free math and reading enrichment program for second through 12th graders will begin Saturday at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Teaneck.
The program, called Math Adventures & Word Play, is open to Teaneck residents and others throughout the New York metro area. It will offer a range of math, reading and writing instruction, according to Teaneck Board of Education President Ardie Walser, the program’s co-founder.
The math sessions will provide instruction for elementary, middle and high schoolers in a range of areas from basic arithmetic to calculus. In the “word play” program, instruction on areas including reading comprehension, essays and creative writing will be offered.
Walser is seeking volunteers from various background to assist. New volunteers are asked to arrive at 10 a.m. for registration and orientation.
In addition to offering extra instruction for young people, the program will also provide sessions for parents.
“The Parent Center is a program designed to help parents become better advocates for their children,” Walser said in an email.
Last year, the parent program included Teaneck school officials who spoke on topics including New Jersey’s standardized tests and special education.
The program will begin Oct. 6 at 10:30 a.m. at 118 Chadwick Road in Teaneck and last through March 30, 2013.
