Math Challenge

Math Challenge provides students with opportunities to sharpen mathematical problem-solving skills. It's also an avenue for families to become involved and enjoy math together. The program is FREE to all students, K-5 and no sign-up is necessary.

There will be 15 sets of challenges released every other week starting in late September and ending in May. Lucky winners are chosen from each grade level for each Math Challenge. Students who complete 12 or more of the 15 sets of Math Challenges will receive a trophy.
