Montlake Math Challenge

Congratulations to our 3rd and 4th grade math team on their participation in the Math is Cool competition this past week. Maeve Eickelberg won the Montlake highest individual test score, and Sam Evans, Peter Bromly, and Peder Bakken did a great job at competing too. Some pictures are available too. Thank you also to Harriet Bakken and Jon Evans for helping out. We had a lot of fun.

Based on the response I received in class, I have signed us up for two 4-person teams for the 5th grade competition on the 20th of April. I have some, but not all, of your emails and would like to start forming teams soon. If you have any preferences, or if you or your child would like to participate, please let us know at [robertwb | mgoff]

We are also be looking for volenteers to be drivers and chaperones.

The 5th graders now meet in the cafeteria (same time) and the 3rd/4th graders meet after school in the Library.
