Mathletes Score Points in Competitions
Members of the Math League Club at Main Street School – also known as “mathletes” – competed in five national math meets over the course of the school year. As a result, Isabella Ding emerged as the lead scorer for the school’s fourth-grade team and Tane Kim was the lead scorer for the fifth-grade team.
The students prepared for the meets by practicing problems and sharing solutions and strategies with their peers during club time. The Continental Mathematics League is a national program that challenges students to use computational, analytical and problem-solving skills.
“We are so proud of all our mathletes,” Principal Joyce Chapnick said. “A special thank-you to our mathletes’ advisers, Christine Rosner and Nancy Woeckener.”
The following students are members of the fourth-grade team: Kylie Canton, Isabella Ding, Anna Dorokhova, Joshua Greenbarg, Griffin Handfield, Daisy Hodges, Simran Jain, Zachary Milun, Laurel Neubauer, Lila Nolan, Daniel Nyarady, Sydney Pateman, Sabrina Pasternak, Jayin Sawhney, Emma Silverman, Simon Silverman and Nicholas Vinces.
Members of the fifth-grade team are Samuel Andrade, Arya Bose, Emily Buchsbaum, Sawyer Chalsen, Andrew Feng, Rayna Gupta, Anish Joshi, Tane Kim, Wilson Lark, Joshua Lee, Nicola Paul, Alex Shapiro, Jack Silverman, Sophie Suguladze, Shaleen Thaker, Ollie Velez, Alex Williams, Alyssum Won and Michelle Zhou.
