On April 6, a total of 26 students from Wellington Landings Middle School competed in the semi-annual Noetic Learning Math Contest, which is a national mathematics contest for elementary and middle school students.
The goal of the competition is to encourage student interest in math, to develop problem-solving skills and to inspire students to excel in math. More than 32,000 students representing 763 schools across the country took part in this spring’s contest.
The WLMS team was led by Terrence Walters. The following students were Wellington Landings team winners: Noah Villafane (eighth grade), Gabriela Brocious (seventh grade) and McKenna Wickers (sixth grade).
