Get Fired Up About Math With Crazy 8s Club at Colfax Library!



The Colfax Library plans Crazy 8s Club for kids in grades 3-5. This 8 week after school program is designed to get kids fired up about math beginning on Wednesday, September 23 from 2:30-4:00 p.m. Registration is required by September 14 for this free, fun math and discovery club.

We all know parents need to read to their kids, but what about math? Crazy 8s Club is a fast-growing nonprofit whose goal is to get kids to love math as much as dessert. According to the Bedtime Math Foundation, nearly a third of Americans would rather clean the bathroom than solve a math problem. We need to raise the next generation to love numbers. Every week, youth get to build things, run and jump, make music, make a mess…and make friendships at the same time.

Crazy 8s Club gathers on a weekly basis for 8 weeks with mischief-making activities like Bouncy Dice Explosion and Toilet Paper Olympics. With more than 2, 500 clubs serving over 45,000 kids, it is fast becoming America’s favorite math club for elementary kids.


Space is limited, so if you have a child in grades 3-5 interested in 8 weeks of wacky math fun, call Sheri at the Colfax Library, 397-4366 to register. For additional information about this after school program, please visit www.bedtimemath.org or www.whitco.lib.wa.us
