Volunteers Needed for 5th Grade District Wide Math Competition Prep
Monday, February 24, 2014 6:10 AM


This year the MPS District Wide 5th Grade Math Competition will be held on Saturday, April 26. In the past, Lake Harriet students have done a wonderful job representing our school at the competition.

In order to prepare for the challenge, we need parent volunteers to help the students by leading an hour long math quiz prep class, either before or after school. You need not be a math whiz yourself - prep materials and sample questions from past competitions will be available from Ms. Kirk. To date, we have one parent who has expressed an interest, but would like to have a few more to work together.

The day of the week and the time are at your discretion, as well as the number of sessions to do before the competition in April. The students would meet for an hour before or after school in one of the classrooms at upper campus to practice test questions and to become fluent in working as a team. Any parent/family members with a love for math are welcome. You need not have a fifth grader in school at present.

If you are interested, please contact Ms. Weidenbach via e-mail kweidenb@mpls.k12.mn.us
