Wacona Elementary School placed first in February’s Sumdog Okefenokee Math Competition. Out of the 53 classes that competed from various surrounding areas, Wacona’s Math Team 1 and Math Team 2 both came out on top.
During the online contest, each student was given one thousand math questions to answer in one week’s time. An overall class score was computed from the students’ average number of correct answers. Wacona third grader, Isabella S., placed first on the student leaderboard with 974 correct answers. Mrs. Cone, math team coach, stated, “The math team worked so diligently throughout the contest, and it paid off with a big win”! John Chancey is principal of Wacona Elementary School.
