Math Olympiad - Parents of 4th & 5th Graders

Math Olympiad is a group of 4th and 5th grade students that meet weekly, after school, between October and March to solve challenging math problems.  The groups meet at JJIS from 3:15 - 4:15 on Tuesdays.  To become a part of the group students take a qualifying test.  A maximum of 40 students will be invited to participate in the Math Olympiad based on the results.  All students will have the option to take the test at school.  Please speak to your child about whether they would like to take the short qualifying test, which will take a maximum of 30 minutes.  The qualifying test will be given the week of October 10 - 14.  Students who qualify for the group will be notified by letter sent home in backpacks by October 19.  Students who participate in the Math Olympiad group will need to be picked up at the JJIS lobby at 4:15 each week.  The group is run by 5th grade teachers Thom Bech and Helen Desrochers.  Please email Helen Desrochers at [email protected] or Thom Bech at [email protected] if you have any questions.

Parents: Planning on volunteering?

If you are considering volunteering to chaperone a field trip or volunteer at a school or PTO event, please take a moment to fill out a volunteer form. Volunteer forms need to be updated each school year. Forms should be completed 7-10 days before the event you are wishing to volunteer for to ensure there is ample time for your form to be reviewed and the district volunteer list to be updated.
