Tri Family Math Night

On January 19th, Tri Elementary held their first Family Fun Night. Approximately 140 parents and students returned back to school on Monday night for a Sports themed learning experience. We were proud to be sponsors of this event through a Henry County Community Foundation TASC Grant. Parents learned about the new Indiana Academic Math Standards, along with playing math related games with their children. Participants were also treated with a dinner at the school. 

Kindergarten teacher and Family and Community Involvement Committee Member, Jenny Kinser, was pleased with the outcome of the event and said, “Tonight was our math night/sports extravaganza at Tri. It was fun, well attended, and a good chance to have our parents in the classroom playing games with their kids. Our first try was a success!” Plans are now in the works for a second Family Fun Night on February 24th, with the focus being on Language Arts.

Composed of students from the five county high schools, the TASC grants committee meets four times a year to evaluate grant submissions relating to youth and educational programs. Monies are awarded from the Unrestricted Fund for Community Grants. Grant guidelines and applications are available at

Bill Bergmann, retired teacher and Foundation volunteer from Knightstown, is the TASC Committee Chair.  Susan Falck-Neal, Henry County Community Foundation Board Member, also serves as an advisor to the youth grants committee.
