BGE Celebrates Math and Reading Night at Food Lion

        Math and Reading Night at Food Lion in Bowling Green, VA was a great success with a team effort from the classroom teachers, the Title 1 team, and the Food Lion staff. Students were able to practice reading and math skills in a real life environment. The Bowling Green Elementary children had the opportunity to work alongside their parents in a relaxed atmosphere.  The children and parents both made connections between real life skills and skills taught in school.  Each child answered questions and received a gift packet from Food Lion.  Parents were able to win a $25.00 gift cards in a raffle provided by Food Lion.  This is a great example of how when we all work together as a team (schools and the community), the students win.
