WAMS Math Team Places First

WAMS math team placed first at the annual Math Counts competition held in Toms River on Saturday February 4, 2017. Each year WAMS competes in the annual competition against ten schools with approximately 80 students from Ocean and Burlington county. The competition consists of a 30 question sprint test, an eight question problem solving test and a ten question team test. In addition to the WAMS team placing first, all ten students from WAMS placed in the top fifteen individually, with six placing in the top ten and WAMS students finishing first, second and third. Way to go WAMS math team! The next stop for the math team will be the state competition on March 11, 2017 at Rutgers University.

MHS – Another Successful Model UN Conference

MHS Social Studies teacher and MooMUN (MHS Model United Nations) Advisor, Dr. Fred Bjornstad, shares with us a wrap-up of the wildly successful proceedings of the recent Model UN conference:

The fourteenth annual Moorestown Model United Nations Conference was held at Moorestown High School on Saturday, February 4th, 2017.  Approximately 220 student delegates from high schools throughout New Jersey debated and negotiated topics from food accessibility, free trade and the disputed South China Sea. MooMUN members began organizing the event in the fall and their attention to every last detail made the day a great success.  Two senior members of MooMUN were the secretaries-general of the conference, who oversaw the selection of topics, negotiated with caterers and took care of innumerable other issues.  A Junior member of MooMUN led the Crisis Committee, which created and filmed crises that enlivened the nine conference committees.  Those committees were chaired by nine talented MooMUN members. In addition to running a great conference, MHS delegates also picked up numerous awards – with ten student delegates winning committee awards. If you see any of these students, give them a pat on the back.  They deserve it.”

Amazing African Americans

Mrs. Furman’s second grade class at Roberts’ is learning about some AMAZING African Americans. Each student has been given a different person to learn about. When the students are finished writing their report, they will be giving an oral presentation of their person to the class. As the other students are listening to the report, they will be writing down three important facts that they have learned about each amazing African American.
