Forty-one (41) Wyoming Primary REACH students and 20 Middle School MathCounts club members had an extremely impressive showing at this weekend’s Perennial Math Competition. Perennial Math, created by an educator to offer students more venues to showcase their talents and to help teachers develop math skills in their classrooms, hosts online and onsite national and international competitions for 3rd-12th grade students. The most recent onsite tournament took place at Lakota East High School.
A Wyoming Primary School third grade team won third place, while first and second place team awards went to two fourth grade teams and two eighth grade teams!
In the individual competition, first place awards were earned by third grader Charlie Carson; fourth graders Luke Cielak, Liam Hagerman, Evelyn Wackler and AJ Wilson; seventh grader Damon Cavitt; and eighth graders Sarah Omidvar and Avi Rosenberg. Second place individual awards went to fourth graders Jane Burrows and Mina Woods-Corwin and eighth grader Sophia Wilhelm and third place awards were earned by third graders Landon Cossman and Austin Lin; fourth graders Kara Fischer, Graydon Gist and Kajus Sabacius; and eighth graders Andrew Burns and Avery Fuller.
“I am proud of their success, but I’m even more proud of how respectful and supportive they were during the competition,” said Wyoming Teacher Jennifer Gerstner. “It was a great day to be a Cowboy!”
