Grant update: Math facts, one step at a time

Fourth-grade students at PCIS

The Piqua Community Foundation fully supported a grant request to install math facts decals on the face of the stairs at Piqua Central Intermediate School (PCIS) in its fall 2021 grant cycle.

Students returning to school this fall are enjoying the new additions, and PCIS Principal Heath Butler said the 750 students at the building this year all benefit.

“The objective of this project is to bring color to the walls and halls and address the need for students to know their math facts to be successful in both their math and science classes. It is our hope that a focus on knowing math facts will continue to support growth from our students.”
