Thanks for choosing math in July

Seth Diamond

K to 6th grade

STAR program

Mullen - thanks to all for your enthusiasm and desire to do this for the students in the summer time

O'Malley - Archimedes could visit us if we had longer school days, these kind of activities belong in the classroom every day. We need air conditioning in the schools, we need longer days. We need to pay teachers more. That is a theme. I am not proposing an action item. I hope to see it during my time. Thank you again!

Jewel - I have to admit that this is my favorite time of year, I was talking with the Dean of Ohio St integrating different programs, allowing achievement. You do it every day with math, english and allowing them to be creative. I am disappointed in that you have only as many as you do. How many students do we have in the district? Maybe we have not done enough to advertise this.
