Hello Chadbourne families,
CFFA has registered 4 teams (3 in Division E and 1 in Division M) for Math Olympiad this year. Sign ups will start on Monday, October 1st. 4th, 5th and 6th graders can register for Division E but Division M is open only to 6th graders. The 4 teams can accommodate 105 students in Division E and 35 students in Division M.
The 5 contests will take place on the following dates and times in the MUR. Please note change in day and time from last year.
Contest Date and Time
Contest 1 Tuesday, November 13th - 7.15 to 8.15 am
Contest 2 Tuesday, December 11th - 7.15 to 8.15 am
Contest 3 Tuesday, January 15th - 7.15 to 8.15 am
Contest 4 Tuesday, February 12th - 7.15 to 8.15 am
Contest 5 Tuesday, March 5th - 7.15 to 8.15 am
Please mark these dates in your child's calendar. As this is before school, there should be no conflicts. Students MUST attend all 5 contests. No make-ups will be given. The duration of the contests is 30 minutes, but we need additional time to help seat them, explain the rules and dismiss them promptly before the school warning bell rings.
Sign ups will be open till Wednesday, October 10th. If more than 140 students sign up, 140 participants will be picked via random lottery. This was recommended over first-come, first-serve by our helpful teachers. In order to make sure all grades get equal chance, 45 students will be picked from Grade 4, 45 from Grade 5 and 50 from Grade 6. 140 is the maximum number the contests can be administered to in the MUR in a meaningful way; hence the limit.
For those of you new to Math Olympiad or how it is administered at Chadbourne, please visit the following links and read up. If you have a question that is not answered in either of those places, please contact me at email@example.com
This is a parent led activity and we need volunteers to help run it smoothly. If you are signing up your child, please volunteer to help administer the contests. Volunteer sign-up sheets will be sent out on Konstella prior to each contest.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the only time I am sending out the announcement to the entire school on Konstella. Future Math Olympiad related announcements will be sent out just to 4th, 5th and 6th grade classrooms to avoid spamming all parents. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE MOVED YOUR CHILD TO THEIR CLASSROOM ON KONSTELLA TO RECEIVE FUTURE ANNOUNCEMENTS.
