- A great evening for the faculty, students, and parents at Piney Branch ES.
The flyer read: Come and learn about how to help your students prepare for the upcoming MSA tests. But the more than 170 diverse parents and students who filled the Piney Branch ES all-purpose room Thursday night gained that and so much more–new awareness, connections, and power.
Check out the evening in pictures:
Dad and daughter ponder a math question.
There was a large, diverse crowd. Just about every seat in the all-purpose room was filled.
This mom receives Spanish translation via headphones.
Third grade teacher Kristen Dunlap helps a student with a practice question.
