W.S. Mount Elementary School’s Mount Math Masters teams captured first and second place at the Suffolk County Math Tournament at Stony Brook University. Additionally, the students received 10 individual trophies for earning top 10 honors at the contest.
The school was represented at the contest by two sixth-grade teams, which were comprised of a mix of sixth and fifth-grade students. They competed against 52 teams made up of more than 250 contestants at the event.
