MATH CLUB COACHES URGENTLY NEEDED!
The Meridian Park Math Club needs coaches and parent volunteers! In particular, third- and fifth-grade coaches are urgently needed and parent volunteers for all grades are needed.
Coaching math club is rewarding and fun, and does not require any special skills. Math Club provides study materials and the answers—if you’ve passed high-school algebra, you can coach math club!
Solving math word problems in a timed test is excellent preparation for high school and college entrance exams. Please don’t let your child miss out. Math Club is open to 3-6 graders. Registration is on October 1 from 8:00-8:30 in the MP library.

If you can help coach or volunteer, contact Ed Goldstick, MP Math Club Coordinator, at mpmathclub. For more info please visit mpmathclub.com.
