Math Club

The Math Club had a successful start.  The 5/6 group has 14 students and the 3/4 group has 12 students.  The students have written their first Caribou Contest Test. All students participating in the math club were in the top 88% of the world.  There were 4 students in the 5/6 group that placed top 10 provincially.  Three students in the 3/4 group achieved a top 10 provincial score.  Students did really well; we are very proud of the results!
