Snoqualmie Elementary School students attended a “Math is Cool” competition at Mt. Baker Middle School in Auburn, on March 9 – and won first place in their division.

In addition, two SES students — James Bartholomew and Edison Wheeler — tied for first place as individuals. Also, Ethan Irvine placed fourth and Krish Selvan finished fifth.

“Math is Cool” is a statewide contest for students in grades four through 12. SES took part in the western region contest. There were 21 schools at the Mt. Baker Middle School site, and six of the schools — with 72 students competing — were in their fifth grade division.

“I am so proud of these kids. Our school had seven math teams, with 28 total kids,” Desi Cuddihy, the fifth grade teacher said.

The SES students’ scores will go up against others in the state, to determine who will move on to the “Masters” competition. This will be determined after all the regional competitions have been completed.
