What do Mom's, Muffin's and Math have in Common? Students! Mom's came to Art City Elementary School on Friday March 25, 2016, to eat muffins and do math with their students in the third-grade classes. The students showed their moms how they could do math while enjoying a muffin. Moms were wowed by the activities and games their children were engaged in. Teachers were also sitting with students and giving one on one attention and help. Thank you, moms for taking time out of your busy mornings to come and do math with us.
