5th Grade Math Team Excelling This Year

On January 29, math team tryouts were held after school at Holden Elementary. All 5th grade students were invited to try out. Based on the highest scores, a team of twelve students was created. The 5th grade team is part of the Holden Middle School Math Team which consists of students in grades 5-8.

Practices were held on Mondays after school throughout February before the first competition at Sherwood Middle School on February 29. Students placed in all 6 categories and, as a team, brought home a 1st place plaque. Practices continued after spring break and the team attended another competition at Knob Noster on March 14. Again, students placed in all 6 categories and brought home their second 1st place team plaque. To celebrate their victories, donuts were enjoyed the following morning at school.

The final two competitions are scheduled for March 18 and March 25 at Holden. Watch the Holden Elementary Facebook page to find out how the team performs. An end-of-season pizza party, with pizzas donated by 2nd Street Bistro, will be held in honor of all of their achievements on March 25. Thank you for your support, 2nd Street Bistro!
