2nd and 3rd Grade Noetic Learning Math Contest
In the month of April, 2nd and 3rd graders had the opportunity to participate in the Noetic Learning Math Contest. The Noetic Learning Math Contest is a national elementary math problem solving contest held twice a year. More than 24,000 students representing 1,761 teams across the country took part in this spring’s contest.
We would like to congratulate our winners who received National Honorable Mention. This title is awarded to approximately the top 50% of participating students:
Congratulations to all the winners and to all those who participated! The contest results demonstrate our students' great problem solving skills and math talents. They also show that our students can rise to the occasion and can meet any challenge.
