ELEMENTARY GRADES
MATH CLUB

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.  

Our class size limitation is mandated by the Crazy 8's organization and not St. Joseph.  We appreciate your understanding of their policies.

As soon as our new teachers are signed up with the Crazy 8's organization, we will send an email to each family and their child's placement.  We still anticipate a September 19th start date for all groups however, we must also wait for additional supplies to be mailed to our campus from Crazy 8's.

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!
