Year-End ST Math Celebrations of Learning and Success

Cartwheels, video compilations and virtual Q&As - these are some of our favorite ways that our ST Math partner schools celebrated their achievements this school year. Teachers took to Twitter and Facebook to share how they recognized their students’ hard work before summer break. And from coast to coast, you can see how JiJi Culture is changing the perception of math across the country!
