Oxbow's annual Math Pentathlon Competition.
Huron Valley Math Pentathlon Tournament
We are excited to start planning the 2019 District Math Tournament. The District Competition will be a go with the following schools: Country Oaks, Heritage, Highland, Johnson, Kurtz, Lakewood, Oxbow and Spring Mills. The event is on March 21st, 2019 at Milford High School at 6:30 p.m. Registration starting at 6:15 p.m. All participants will receive a goodie bag. We have been talking tournament to the kids and many have expressed excitement and interest.
Please contact your school’s Math Club lead to sign up your interested child(ren) to participate. The participants are part of each school’s Math Club program. If your child is interested, please talk with the parent lead at your school ASAP.
Children will be paired up with a team member from each school. Every pair will get to play each of the three games that they have been practicing this season. There may be a chance that a child might play independently, but we will begin having those discussions with the kids and see who would be best if that need arises.
For each group of 4 children that are signed up, we will need 1 parent volunteer to help proctor a table. Each school will have this responsibility to assure that all of the tables have an adult lead at each table to assure the kids are participating with good sportsmanship and following game rules. We have time and materials to prepare our adult volunteers for a game to learn. If you are interested as a parent(s) to volunteer to help, contact your school Math Club lead parent. This is a great way to be involved. The Tournament is held in the Cafeteria at MHS and parents are asked to stay outside of the room during the event. There is a break time for the students to get up, snack and rehydrate, etc.
As always, thank you for having your children be a part of this program thus far, it has been great opportunity for them and all of us that have been playing with them.
