On Saturday, April 22, eight of our K-1 students participated in the Division 1 National Mathematics Pentathlon Academic Tournament held at Walled Lake Central High School.  The Mathematics Pentathlon is a program of interactive problem-solving games, which the students have been learning and practicing since this past December. This motivational program strengthens basic math concepts and skills, as well as stimulates creative thinking while developing problem-solving skills.  Over 400 students participated in the Tournament.  “Pentathletes” were given varying levels of points based on whether they won, lost or tied the game.  Everyone of our FRCS Pentathletes were star examples of courage, perseverance and good sportsmanship!   They all received awards of participation, with two of our students (Max Fritz and Tyler Webb) receiving “Honorable Mentions” for winning three of the five tournament games.  Way to go K-1 Pentathletes!  We are so proud of all your hard work and dedication!
