Math Club Updates
The Math Club students have been very busy this fall and winter! Congratulations to our students for their amazing performances in Mathcounts and AMC-8. It would not have been possible without the tireless support of Alison Gorman, our Dartmouth graduate student volunteer, Daryl DeFord, and Crossroads Academy parent Wayne Chin.
Mathcounts Chapter Competition: Crossroads Places First
Congratulations to the ten Crossroads students who participated in the Mathcounts Chapter Competition hosted at the Richmond Middle School last Thursday, based on their performance on the school-wide test: Matthew Adner (8), Riley Chin (7), Xavier Kahn (7), Liana Lansigan (8), Audrey Lewellen (7), Maxine Park (8), Saia Patel (8), Mikey Rieger (8), Brynne Spaeth (7), Cecy Sweeney (8).
Six Crossroads students placed in the top 12 as individuals and competed in the live, head-to-head competition Countdown Round: Liana (11th), Cecy (10th), Audrey (8th), Brynne (6th), Riley (5th), and Maxine (1st). Maxine also placed 1st in the Countdown Round. Saia, Matthew, and Xavier were tied within one point of the top 12.
The Crossroads team of Brynne, Maxine, Riley, and Saia placed 1st, with the highest score on the team test.
Thank you to Ann Rightmire (7), Amica Lansigan (6), and Aidan Brody (6) for attending all of the practices and preparing as alternates!

Crossroads Students in Grades Four Through Eight Participate in the AMC-8
This past November, twenty-eight Crossroads students participated in the national American Mathematics Competition exam for students through eighth grade (AMC-8).
Congratulations to all of the students who participated-more than a third of our students placed in the top 25 percent of the country on this highly competitive exam taken by more than 102,000 serious mathematics students across North America. This is particularly notable given the number of younger students in grades four through six that chose to take the exam.
The AMC-8 school-level awards for Crossroads go to:
Gold: Maxine Park (8), also Distinguished Honor Roll (top 1%)
Silver: Riley Chin (7), scored in the top 5%
Bronze: Roxane Park (5), also Achievement Roll (6th grade and younger scoring in the top 7%)
