Math Olympiad Team – Grades 4, 5, 6

 

Does your child love math and problem-solving? Would they like hanging out with other kids doing just that and having fun? Then become a mathlete and join the Math Olympiad team! This team will push and challenge your child while participating in fun math activities and competitions!

 

 

Your school’s Math Olympiad Team is a PTA-sponsored after-school math competition team for students in 4th through 6th grade. Training sessions are held once per week at school from 3:00-4:00p.m, meeting days TBD. This is a year-long program lasting from September to mid-May. Students in Math Olympiad Team will have the opportunity to participate in up to three math competitions, including MOEMS, Mathzilla!, and Math Field Day. 

 

 

This year we have space for a maximum of 90 teammates from 4-6th grades. If your child is interested, please add them to our interest list by 9/6/19. Team notifications will go out by 9/13/19. Based on the number of students interested, a waitlist may be formed.

 

 

Registering on the Math Olympiad team is a two-part process. On 8/26 Interest List Sign Ups open. This is for those who are interested in joining. Once Interest List closes on 9/6, students will be placed on teams based on district-wide criteria. Interest List Sign-Up does not guarantee a place on the team. Once teams have been formed, students and parents will be notified by September 13 with instructions to register and process donations. Class meetings will start on week of September 23. 

 

 

Team selections are based on the following: Priority is given to GATE students and students who have a CAASPP of 98% in math. Remaining spots are filled according to the students’ CAASPP math scores. 

 

 

Please note that Math Olympiad is not a math remediation course or a child-care option. Although this is a recreational after-school activity, Math Olympiad will be an enjoyable experience to students who possess strong math skills and enthusiasm for problem-solving. We ask for a donation of $350 cost for the year-long season (September to May) that covers snacks before every class, t-shirts, and all instructional costs. This donation is non-refundable once Math Olympiad season starts.
