Meridian Elementary celebrates Math Night

Stevenson said the intent of Math Night is to acquaint parents with their children's math studies and teach them ways to strengthen math skills at home. Pictured (from left) are second-grader Christian Stover, fifth-graders T.J. Kibbe, Clayton Morlan and Billie McClain and Clayton's mother, Rena Morlan.
