Schools in New Fairfield and North Haven Receive Awards for Highest Participation Summer 2017

(HARTFORD, CT) – Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) Commissioner Dianna R. Wentzell today launched the 2018 Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge: “Solving the Mystery of Math”. Commissioner Wentzell also recognized the top-performing schools from the 2017 Summer Math Challenge and presented “Highest Participation” awards for last summer to Meeting House Hill School in New Fairfield (Elementary Level) and North Haven Middle School (Middle School Level). 

Math education is a priority for CSDE and the Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge is designed to assist students in retaining math learning during the summer. Students in grades 1 through 8 will be able to take advantage of the Summer Math Challenge, sponsored by Metametics.  This is a FREE math skills maintenance program based on grade-level standards that help prepare students for college and careers.  The program is targeted to students who have just completed grades 1 through 8 and is designed to help them retain math skills learned during the previous school year.  

In an effort to expand the Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge, students in grades 9 through 12 are encouraged to practice their math skills using the Official SAT Practice from College Board and Khan Academy.  Students can link their College Board accounts or determine their current skill level using the diagnostic quizzes provided to get personalized practice recommendations. Schools with the highest percentage of participating enrollment are recognized for their efforts.  

Similar to the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge, all information and printable materials (e.g., math log, registration information, and information for parents and students) for the Commissioner’s Summer Math Challenge can be found on the CSDE’s website

The ATOMIC Mission is to ensure that every Connecticut student receives world-class education in mathematics by providing vision, leadership and support to the K-16 mathematics community and by providing every teacher of mathematics the opportunity to grow professionally.
