On Saturday, March 11, King’s Elementary participated in the annual Shoreline Math Olympiad. The Olympiad challenges competitors to complete two individual, grade-level math tests and two team tests. 22 students represented King’s Elementary among 665 fourth through eighth grade students from schools throughout Shoreline. They have been preparing since September, working diligently to learn and challenge themselves.

In the end, ten King’s students placed individually and three of our teams placed. Both of our fifth grade teams placed, 5th and 6th overall, and one of our fourth grade teams place 5th overall. Advanced Math Teacher and Librarian Denise Boone, who is the King’s Math Olympiad Coach, praised her students: “I am so very proud of each and every student who participated in the Math Olympiad. Each of them put in the hard work all year, and persevered through all our practice sessions.  I am most proud of how they challenged themselves, with a desire to learn and grow.”

Our King’s community commends our math competitors, not just for their achievements, but also for their perseverance, hard work, and desire to grow and challenge themselves.
