Math Masters for 6th Graders

Do you love math? Would you like to work with some Barton 6th graders and help prepare them for the Math Masters' Competition on February 12 at North High? We have an opportunity for you. Working with interested 6th graders who would like to compete on the 12th will take place every Monday and Wednesday after school from 2 - 3 P.M. of each week prior to the competition. Katrina Belding will be facilitating the groups but would really like interested parents to help prepare and coach our students. We'll also have Math Masters' preparation for 5th graders after the 6th grade competition is over. The date for the 5th grade competition has not been announced.

Very importantly, please encourage your 6th grader to get involved and be challenged in math and represent Barton at the competition. Students will work in small groups and in some short individual competitions. All students are welcome to be a part of the Barton Math Masters' teams. Everyone can benefit from the extra coaching and learning new skills and concepts in math. At the competition on the 12th, students will get pizza and a t-shirt. The competition is in the morning from 9 to 1. It's a lot of fun!

Please contact if you are interested in helping.
