Emily Gray, 6, of Cassville, completes an activity with her mother Mary Gray, which taught students about graphs and sorting, and had the added perk of taking the playing pieces, candy hearts, home to eat. The activity, which was held in second-grade teacher Donna Youngblood’s classroom in the Cassville primary building, was part of Family Fun night, a quarterly event to invite parents and family members into the classroom and promote family involvement.
