During the month of October, the Bretton Woods Math Center hosted their annual Halloween math contests. The contests consisted of estimating the weight of a large pumpkin and guessing how many candy corns there are in the Halloween jar. The response to the contest was overwhelming. The students were eager to participate and it provided them with a great opportunity to sharpen their math skills. Ashton R., of Class 2-5 won the pumpkin contest with the closest guess of 18 pounds. The actual weight of the pumpkin was 17 pounds, 12 ounces. Joel M. (pictured) of Class 5-3, won the candy corn contest with a guess of 373 candy corns. The actual number of candy corns was 382. Congratulations to the contest winners. Happy Halloween to all!
Assemblyman Ramos gathered with families to acknowledge students who completed the NYS Assembly Summer Reading Challenge. Students and their families needed to read together every day throughout the summer and return a marked-off calendar to the Assemblyman's office. Ava B. was awarded a medal in addition to her certificate. Great job! Click on the headline to see another adorable photo.
Students who are currently in grades 1st – 4th grades were invited to participate in an Elementary Summer Reading & LightSail Program.
