MATHCOUNTS with Mr. McCoy
Mathcounts is a national competition program for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students that provides coaching and practice on problem solving and mathematical skills.
Problems are applications of basic math concepts through topics in algebra and geometry. Students wishing to join the club will meet Thursday afternoons in room F370 (Mr. McCoy’s room) beginning November 7th from 1:50 – 3:00pm. Transportation home must be pre-arranged by the student and parent to be picked up at 3:00pm. The season concludes with a series of competitions starting at the local level and ending at the national level.
Competitions are similar to the spelling bee format, and will begin in January here at Sebastian Middle School. This is a mini version of the regional competition to determine the 4 team members that will represent Sebastian at the regional competition in February. State level competition will be held during March in Jacksonville. Specific dates are still to be determined.
Additional information about MATHCOUNTS is available at www.mathcounts.org.
SWAT works to change the social norms associated with tobacco. This means we want to change the way people think about tobacco… making it less desirable, less acceptable and less accessible. We do this by advocating for change in local policies that affect how tobacco is marketed, how it is sold, and where it can be used. SWAT members can expect to participate in a wide range of activities including community education and outreach, public speaking, collecting data, and media advocacy. SWAT members advocate for these goals by leading projects guided by professionals. As a member, they decide how to use advocacy to cause social change in a fun, cool and creative way. The important part is, SWAT gives youth real world experience: community service hours, college application building opportunities and hands on experience in leadership and advocacy.
SWAT meets the last Tuesday of the month at 2:00 -3:00 in the Eagles Nest. Please see Ms. Fortune for a parent permission slip. Thank you.
