For many 6th grade students, this was their first time taking part in a math competition. Everyone tried very hard, and worked together with their team members to solve challenging problems over diverse areas such as Probability, Algebra and Geometry.

PCMS is happy to announce that their 7th Grade team won 1st place, triumphing over rivals including Evergreen, Redmond and Odle. Their 8th grade team received 4th place, which is also a great accomplishment. Even more amazingly, our 7th grade students clinched 1st, 2nd AND 3rd place for individual events. This is an astonishing accomplishment, and just goes to show how talented these students are. Their hard efforts have clearly paid off!
