Elementary Students Enjoy Math Field Day

On May 11, 2019, students gathered for the 28th Annual Elementary Math Field Day at Arroyo Vista Elementary School. A total of 114 mathematically talented fourth and fifth grade students from Arroyo Vista, Marengo, and Monterey Hills Schools participated in the event.

Forty South Pasadena High School (SPHS) students wrote and conducted the field day events, which emphasized skills highlighted in the California Math Standards. Students were challenged in mental math, problem solving, estimation, calculator, math jeopardy, math relay, spatial reasoning, and math logic games.

Organizers praised SPHS seniors Lauren Kafkaloff, Lindsey Kuwahara, Noah Parker, Rainey Tilley, Sarah Sy, Ben Kim, Angela Zhang, Kayla Zhang, Alison Liao, Jean Lih, Flora Cheung, Hannah Kim, Rachel Lu, Ryan Jeong and former South Pasadena student Caroline Choi for their years of service to the math field day program.

Teachers Helena Yee, Dawn Tull, Rachael Rodriquez, and Sharon Reed coached and encouraged the students. A generous grant given by the South Pasadena Chinese-American Club helped to make the event possible, and Walgreens of San Gabriel donated supplies.
