  • Whitney 5th Grade Mathematicians!

    Posted by Kim Newell on 12/1/2020

    “Three Whitney Wildcat Scholars” 

    Soar to the State Level in Imagine Math

    Whitney Elementary School is piloting an adaptive math program this year called Imagine Math.  The program supports students and teachers with personalized, interactive, and engaging math instruction that is ideal for the distance learning model.  Whitney is celebrating three 5th Grade ROCKSTAR mathematicians Nicole, Penelope, and Emma who have created a healthy competition among themselves at both the school and state level. Each of the three girls interchangeably either hold 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place positions at the state level for most lessons passed for 5th grade standards since the beginning of the school year.  Please join the Whitney community in celebrating our State Level Mathematicians for Imagine Math!
