Registration for Math Adventures & Word Play (MAWP), a community based (free) math and writing enrichment program, begins Saturday, October 6, 2018, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church at 10:00 AM.
MAWP consists of programs for young scholars in the form of math, reading and writing enrichment and for parents through the Parent Voice Box Forum series. MAWP is in its 6th year serving the young people of Teaneck and those living throughout the New Jersey - New York metropolitan area. October 6th will be our initial registration and orientation session. We enroll both young scholars and volunteers continuously throughout the year. Volunteers may give as much or as little of their time as they like.
