Congratulations to Roxhill Elementary scholars who just did what no other students from their school had done before. Roxhill’s Jeanette Hitch shares the photo and report:

On Saturday morning, 12 fifth graders from Roxhill traveled up to Lake Stevens to participate in the Math Olympiad competition. The team was coached by Roxhill’s math-intervention teacher, Brent Hester. This was the first year that Roxhill students have competed. The student “mathletes” competed in teams of four students, against 26 other teams.

There were two parts to the competition — a long question which the students had one hour to work on, and several shorter questions. Our Roxhill Stars placed first in the long question category and placed third in the short question category.

More about the state-wide Math Olympiad competition can be found on the Washington State Mathematics Council‘s website here.
