Math Pentathlon

The Pentathlon Institute, a Non-for Profit educational organization, is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana. It’s major program, Mathematics Pentathlon®, is a time-tested Program of interactive problem-solving games, supportive curricular and instructional activities, and assessment tools for students in grades K-7. This motivational Program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, aligns with National and State Mathematics Standards, and stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills. A focus on conceptual understanding and the integration of spatial, computational and logical reasoning are key attributes of Mathematics Pentathlon. By using specially designed games and activities that differentiate instruction, ALL students of varying abilities and learning styles are motivated to enjoy math and spend more time learning this subject matter. These factors are critical in improving students’ performance in math.

Inclusion Committee

Reflections

The arts—and the National PTA Reflections program—support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in your school community. Celebrate arts learning in your school community with Reflections.

During the 2020 - 21 school year, hundreds of thousands of students will reflect on a common theme "I Matter Because" and create original works of art in the categories of dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography and visual arts. Students may enter the national awards program through their school's PTA.

Legislative Committee

Chair: Marci Tarvin

The Inclusion Committee provides an exciting venue for parents and the school district to work together, share information and resources, and create an on-going dialogue about issues relating to students with learning differences and disabilities. The committee is not a separate special education entity (Special Education Parent Advisory Council - SEPAC), but rather a committee of Fern Bluff’s PTA. The goal is to address the needs of a broad range of students, not just those with an Individual Education Plan (IEP), and to increase acceptance and inclusion of students with learning differences in our school community.

Chair: Katy Kyrish

PTA believes in Every Child, Once Voice and advocates at the local, state and national level "to spark changes in policies and programs that benefit children." Visit News to stay up to date on what is happening at the local level.
