Mathcounts — we have a team!
Somehow all the cajoling and bribery worked out, and we have a 4th member for our Mathcounts team! She is a 6th grader who doesn’t feel ready, but we have convinced her that anything she contributes is great, and even if she does poorly this year, the experience will help her for future years. Having a full team despite the small size of our school means so much to my oldest son, who is in his last year of Mathcounts. I must admit that I am also proud that despite our tiny size we can field a full, and I believe respectably competent, team! We have our chapter competition coming up this weekend, so wish them luck!
