Math Olympiad
On Saturday, March 11, King’s Elementary participated in the annual Shoreline Math Olympiad. We were among 665, 4th-8th grade students, from schools throughout Shoreline. We had 22 students representing King’s Elementary. They have been preparing since September, working diligently to learn and challenge themselves. The Olympiad is made up of 2 individual tests and 2 team tests. We had 10 students place individually and 3 of our teams also placed. Both of our 5th grade teams placed, 5th and 6th overall, and one of our 4th grade teams place 5th overall.  We are very proud of our students, not just for their achievements, but also for their perseverance, hard work, and desire to grow and challenge themselves.
