This year, McBride Elementary School set a school record for the number of students it sent to regional and statewide contest with Math League.

In total, 13 McBride students qualified for regional competition, with 9 students qualifying for statewide competition in May. 

"It's been a big year for us," said Marjie DeWilde, second grade teacher at McBride. "We had nearly 40 students try out for the Math Team. As a result, we ended up adding a third day of after-school Math Club meetings. Most kids attend two days a week, learning through competition, super speed solving and more. Not everyone loves math when they start, but they are all huge fans when they finish."

McBride Mathletes Heading to State Competition:

  • Lucy Weaver
  • Harper Brown
  • Gage Oliver
  • Ethan Lewis
  • Samuel Shaw
  • Mason Davis
  • Oliver McCrackin
  • Olivia Carsten
  • Kenadi Russell

Students will compete at Math League State Championship May 4, participating in speed solving, word problems, tough problems or team solving.
