Two teams made up of ten 6th grade students from Lake Middle School participated in Math Masters Regional competition held at John Glenn Middle School in Maplewood today. They won the 2nd and 4th place in team competition. Each team member received a medal and a certificate.
A few students also won in the Fact Drill and Individual competitions.
My son won three medals, one from each category. He was happy and proud. It was a fun event.
