We have two teams that have formed to compete in the Moody’s Mega Math Challenge on March 7. 2009. Good luck to them. Hopefully they can win some scholarship money. I hope everyone has had a chance to check out the scholarships available at www.mualphatheta.com. I gave you the direct link in the last newsletter.
It is time that we elect some officers. We will need a president, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. If interested please submit your name to me by Wednesday February 4th. We will be having our first official meeting in the very near future and officers will be one topic we discuss. Hopefully we will have our officers elected by the end of February.
Other items that will be on our agenda are Pi Day (3-14) and fundraising ideas. For Pi day I would like to have the same activity we had last year but let the Math Honor Society run it. (Winning a piece of pie by answering questions that were found around the school building) As for fundraising, I thought the group could take over the recycling of empty ink cartridges and cell phones because we can make a little money that way. We will still need another fundraiser. The first items that we will need money for are the yellow and blue cords that the seniors will wear at graduation.
That’s all for now. Please listen to morning announcements to find out when and where we will have our first meeting.
