Congratulations to the Binks Forest Elementary School Equations Team. The team finished in first place in the Palm Beach County competition against 15 other elementary and middle schools. The team was made up of fourth and fifth grade students Ashesh Amatya, Angelo Chen, Timothy Chen, Zachary Fleisch, Gavin Grave de Peralta, Rohith Karthik, Leo Lorusso, Deven Seedial, Asher Smith and Miles Wang.
Individually, Zachary Fleisch finished in tenth place, Deven Seedial earned ninth place, Miles Wang came in fifth place, Angelo Chen came in fourth place and Timothy Chen tied for first place overall in Palm Beach County. All five of these players will go on to represent Binks Forest and Palm Beach County at the State Academic Games competition in March 2015. Angelo Chen, Miles Wang and Timothy Chen will also go on to National Academic Games in Orlando in April 2015.
The team practiced at least three afternoons a week in order to learn a tremendous amount of material for the competition against other fourth, fifth and sixth graders.
Adrianne Dowling, Patty Tatum and the Binks Forest family are proud of all the hard work and effort the students put in to achieve the honor.
