Recently 10 of our Middle School students competed in a nationwide math competition called Mathcounts. The competition took place on Friday, February 26, at the Northrup Grumman aerospace engineering facility in Redondo Beach. This was the largest regional Mathcounts competition in the country. We competed against 200 other middle school students, from schools all over the South Bay and Santa Monica region. The competition was very challenging, but our students worked very well together as a team. Out of the 21 schools competing, all with rigorous math programs, we ranked 5th overall. Our Country Day team was also honored at the competition for placing first in their division. The day was a fun and rewarding experience for our students, who should be very proud of their hard work and achievement.
