Consisting of fun and creative problems, the Math Counts competitions have written and oral rounds, as well as individual and team components. Though challenging and non-routine, the competition problems focus on the 6th through 8th grade standards of the National Council of Teachers in Mathematics. This club is for highly math-motivated students. 

Art Club will be on most Fridays during the year starting in September from 3-4pm.

Artwork finished at the end of each club can be shared with others in the online Art Club Group in Schoology. Students may join at any time throughout the school year.
