From January 25 to January 27, all 465 students in R.C. Buckley Elementary School participated in the STEAM event Math-a-Thon. The even this year was a huge success with elementary students working on math problems for two minutes a day, for a total of three days. In total, students completed 33,743 math problems in only six minutes!
Each day of the Math-a-Thon is supported by a local business, which graciously makes a donation or sponsors a penny-per-problem. This year, our generous sponsors donated a total of $2,132.32. In addition to this, our local McDonalds rewarded each student in R.C. Buckley Elementary with a Happy Meal gift certificate for their participation and Borg Warner sent pencils for each student.
