M.A.T.H. Bowl

This entry was posted in News on by .

The Math Teams from Akron and Mentone Elementary Schools performed extremely well in the recent M.A.T.H. Bowl Competition. Akron’s Math Team tied for first in the state in their division of 127 schools. Because of the tie breaker, Akron was awarded second place. Mentone’s Math Team placed sixth in the state in the same division.

Again, there were 127 schools in our division from throughout the state that competed in the M.A.T.H. Bowl. To have our two elementary schools both place in the top 10 is simply outstanding!!!

Congratulations to the Akron and Mentone Elementary School Math Team members and coaches. Well done! We are so very proud of you!
