5th-Grade District Math
On Saturday, April 22, students from
Seward participated in a district-wide math competition. They spent hours,
individually and in teams, working on math problems at North High School.
During the last school year, these students have worked in small groups on
different math concepts. On Saturday, they had the opportunity to compete with
other Minneapolis schools on fact drills, number sense/space, shape and
measurement, patterns, relations, and functions/uncertainty data
investigations/randomness and uncertainty, and problem-solving. The students
did an excellent job of representing Seward at the competition!
were: Raquel Bajuscik, Zackary Callahan-Brito, Carter Denison, Thomas Gedion,
Ian Girardeau, Zed Glawe-Strom, Hanna Hickman, Erin Holden, Benjamin Jensen,
Yee Khang, Adam Kress, Eliot Larson, Darian Marshall, Sadie Pelini, Maxwell
Pellinger, Dianne Persaud, Eva Peterson, Odin Russell, Kiernan Skelly, Frances
Turner, and Jasmine Vasquez. Kiernan
Skelly made Honorable Mention in the Individual rounds, and the team of Ian
Girardeau, Frances Turner, and Kiernan Skelly took 4th Place in the Team
Thank you to all of the teachers and
parents for their help and support; a special thanks to Katherine Lewis for
coaching a team; a BIG thank you to all of the students who took part, for
their dedication and hard work! They make us and themselves proud!
