W e have had an overwhelming interest in the Crazy 8's Math Club!  Due to the enormous interest we have had to add teachers to the program.

Again, thank you for your interest in this math club.  We appreciate your patience while we work with Crazy 8's to accommodate all of our budding mathematicians.  Keep an eye out for future information!
