Shoreline Math OIympiad

Want to enter a math contest? Shoreline Math Olympiad is open to all Meridian Park students in grades 4-6, whether they are in Math Club or not. Deadline to sign up: February 3, 2017.

Students need to turn in a signed permission slip, and let the MP Math Club Coordinator at mpmathclub@gmail.com know they are interested, by February 3, 2017, in order to participate. Students are encouraged to form their own teams, though being on a team is not a requirement for participating.

Please note that, due to PTSA policies, we cannot have non-Math Club students at Math Club classes or practices, and therefore cannot put non-Math Club students on Math Club teams. But we can point students to practice materials so they can practice independently.
