     Junior Math Olympiad
A few spots are still available in our Junior Math Olympiad classes! Third grade classes start this Tuesday! Second grade starts Monday, January 28th!

Does your second or third grader love math? Does your child think number games are fun? Is a challenging math problem something he or she likes to tackle? Or perhaps you'd like your child to have a little bit of math practice in a fun environment? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then PCY's Junior Math Olympiad program may be the program for him or her! Sign ups are on a first come, first serve basis and we can accommodate any level of math ability! The first goal of our class is to show how much FUN math can be! 

Second Grade classes will take place on Mondays during early and late bird times (either 8:10-9:05 or 1:55-2:50). 

Third graders come to class on Tuesdays from 8:10-9:05 or 1:55-2:50. 

We'd love to have your mathematician join our class! You can register by going to PCY PTA After School Activites.
