On March 17th, the Palo Verde PTA hosted a Math Kangaroo USA, an international competition in Mathematics.
For the uninitiated, the Math Kangaroo takes place every year on the third Thursday in March, in several places throughout the US, and that students all from grades 1 to 12 are invited to participate. All the participants receive a T-shirt and special memento, and the top winners from each level also look forward to special prizes.
Students from Grade K-5, sat through a 105 minute multi-choice test as they worked through problems that also tested their critical & logical thinking.
Thank you to all the parents who prepared their kids for this test and accompanied them to the testing center at Mitchell Park Community Center.
The results for all grades will be available in May. Fingers crossed that our Eagles take home some prizes!
We look forward to making the Math Kangaroo a Palo Verde tradition!
