Congratulations to our Math Olympiads Team!

Several students from Windham Center School were among nearly 160,000 students worldwide to participate this year in the Math Olympiad Program. This year they participated in a series of four monthly contests of 5 problems each, from November to March, and weekly practice sessions under the supervision and coaching of Mrs. Krish. She taught the children to solve unusual and difficult problems and to think creatively. Mrs. Krish has been the PICO for Math Olympiads for the past two years and is a valued member of the 5th Grade Math and Science Team.

The students responded well and were recognized with certificates for their participation. 23 of the "mathletes" won national awards for excellence within Division E for grades 4-6.Noah Haskell received the prestigious Dr. George Lenchner medallion, awarded for a perfect score.The gold pin is awarded to those in at least the 98th percentile (top 2%).

Each year the Math Olympiads Program serves over 160,000 students on approximately 5000 teams nationally and about 50,000 students on 1000 teams in more than 30 other countries. Since 1979, it has provided challenging, thought-provoking problems that stretch the abilities of students in grades 4 to 8. Strengthening their foundation for both assessment tests and more advanced studies. Our children have responded to the challenge with eagerness and enthusiasm!
