Math-A-Thon Adding Up

Maplewood third-grade teacher Ms. Diane Labate has been coordinating the Math-a-Thon program at her school for several years, and with each successful event, the total monies raised school-wide increase significantly. 

This year, the well-designed and challenging booklets were aligned with the Common Core Standards. The majority of the students and teachers at Maplewood participated, and this year alone, more than $8,410 was raised for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. This brought the Maplewood overall total to $45,194. Congratulations to Ms. Labate and her class for coordinating the Math-a-Thon, and a really big thank you to the whole Maplewood school community for their tremendous support.
