Math Pentathlon (After-School Club)

Calling all problem-solvers! Math Pentathlon is back for 2nd-5th graders, and we hope you'll join.  

Math Pentathlon is an engaging and fun after-school club that meets for one hour every other week. This national program includes interactive problem-solving games and activities, incorporating math principles into challenging and age-appropriate board games designed to enhance problem solving, computational, geometric/spatial, and logical reasoning skills. Math Pentathlon also gives students the opportunity to practice teamwork, being a good sport, sharing ideas, and their communication skills.

The arts – and the National PTA Reflections program – support student success and serve as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in our school community. Reflections is designed to help students personally connect to artistic expression, with support and mentorship from the community. Judging follows a formula from National PTA, with emphasis on expression and articulation of the theme – I am hopeful because – over skill with a medium.
