Building Math Manipulatives
Sixth Graders are learning cube roots. What better way to understand a cube than to build one? The Math In Focus curriculum is a great balance between the concrete and the abstract. Students learned how prime factorization can be helpful in finding both square roots and cube roots.
Help More Students Attend PMFS
You can help more students experience a Plymouth education by directing your individual tax dollars to provide additional financial aid for PMFS students.
Our partner, the Friends Collaborative, has received approval for individual tax credits for the 2020 and 2021 tax year. With the help of our community, that can mean more financial aid dollars for PMFS and our 19 partner Friends schools.
Through Pennsylvania’s tax credit programs, qualified individuals can make a contribution to PMFS and receive 90% of the contribution back as a dollar-for-dollar reduction of their 2020 PA state taxes. This makes large gifts very inexpensive to make. For example, a $10,000 gift will cost a donor just $1000 to make, and if you itemize, you can also claim that $1000 as a charitable gift.
For more information, please contact Ralph Henninger, Director of Development, at 610.828.2288 or email@example.com
