ST. JUDE'S HOSPITAL MATHATHON
The students at Countryside SDA Elementary participated in a Mathathon for St. Jude's Children's Cancer Research Hospital on February 11, 2010. Each student found sponsors to donate varyious amounts of money for each problem they did correctly. There were 200 problems per grade level and 5 points for every correct answer.
We raised over $400.00 to send to St. Jude's Hospital. The students were able to watch a DVD about the hospital and the patients that are at the hospital. Several of the children at the hospital were interviewed. Our students participated in this program last year also and raised over $800.00.
The students really enjoy working with the CD program that Mathathon offers. We felt this was another way we could reach out to the community.
