If your student does not like math, struggles with math, or doesn’t like to work in small groups, this program is probably not right for them. It is fine to try the first few sessions and change your mind; however once a student has decided to stay on the team, we expect him or her to make every reasonable effort to stay in until the end.
Meetings: We will meet 11 times on Tuesdays after school in Mr. Arthur’s room beginning January 24th.
Time: 3:00 to 4:00pm. Participants need to be picked up promptly at 4pm.
Snacks: It is fine to send a snack or send snacks for the group. Please ask Mr. Arthur about any students with allergies.
Competition: The date for the competition is Saturday, April 29th in the Bellevue/Seattle area, and typically runs from 8:15am to 1:30pm. The IVE PTA pays for our registration. Students get a t-shirt and work in assigned teams of 3-4 students. They will compete against 5th graders from around the Seattle area. The coaches are mostly focused on making this an enjoyable, positive learning experience for kids. It is not a high-pressure situation and we are not focused on winning trophies or medals.
