Green Vale Aces Sumdog Math Competition
The 3rd and 4th Grades recently participated in a week-long math contest through “Sumdog”, a website that improves math skills through online games among students nationwide. Games are individualized by skill level as players are ranked based on speed and accuracy. Students were so engaged by the challenge that many chose to compete during recess as well as logging in at home. Of the 14,500 participants, Green Vale had three 3rd Graders place in the top 60: Luciana Salsone (12th), Reese L’Esperance (38th), and Etelle Silvera (59th). Collectively, among 1,500 schools, Green Vale’s 3rd Grade placed in the top 14% and the 4th Grade in the top 25%.
