On April 4, eleven students from Penelope led by Mrs. Montgomery and Mrs. Hueske competed in the semi-annual Noetic Learning Math Contest, a national mathematics contest for elementary and middle school students. The goal of the competition is to encourage students' interest in math, to develop their problem-solving skills, and to inspire them to excel in math. More than 34,000 students representing 776 schools across the country took part in this spring's contest.
Fifth Grader Charlette Mack, Fourth Grader Kaiden Klanika, and Third Grader Noah Timmons had the highest scores from their individual teams and all received National Honorable Mention, an award given to the top 50% of participants. While the contest results certainly demonstrate the Wolverines' math talents, they also show that Penelope students can rise to the occasion and meet challenges head-on.
