Parent University Emphasizes Teamwork!

The fall Parent University on October 26 was set in a new, virtual game show format hosted by SO Fun City. And it was SO Much Fun! Special thanks to North Merrick teachers Amanda Hocevar and Maria Castle for organizing this special event.

North Merrick students and families collaborated to answer various types of trivia questions. When the majority voted for the correct answer, the team won points. There were double points when all the participants voted for the correct answer as well as extra points for completing various tricky challenges.

It was a close game, but, in the end, North Merrick scored 52 points beating students from Syosset and a group in California! As Ms. Hocevar noted, "The night was all about working together as a team toward a common goal. As Hellen Keller said, 'Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.'"
