We are so proud of all the students who demonstrated their willingness to be risk-takers by participating in the Whatcom County Math Championships on Saturday at Whatcom Community College. Turnout from schools (public & private) across the county was very impressive, especially at the 5th grade level, and the competition was stiff. Three of our teams placed in the top 10 of their age division, one from 4th grade and two from 5th. Congratulations to all!
Many thanks to the coaches, Alan Alquist and Kelly Shappell.
Some of our 5th graders (who just can't seem to get enough math) will continue studying and training to compete in the official Washington State Olympiad (middle school division) to be held in Blaine on May 7th. Thanks to Tammy Schroeder who will take over as math coach.
