Invited to Compete Nationally

P.J. Gelinas Junior High School ninth-grade honors theory students participated in the Mathematical Association of America’s national American Mathematic Competition 10 contest and one student made school history with his results.  

The AMC 10 is the first in a series of examinations culminating in the International Math Olympiad. For the first time in school history, a student at Gelinas scored well enough to be invited to take the next level of the exam. This spring, William Sun participated in the three-hour, 15-question American Invitational Mathematics Examination and his result on this exam are still pending.

According to the association’s website, students across the country have taken up the challenge of America’s longest-running and most prestigious math contests, the AMC, for more than 60 years. Every year, at thousands of schools in every state, more than 350,000 students are presented with a set of questions rich in content, designed to make them think and leave them talking about mathematics.

Chart Topping Results

P.J. Gelinas Junior High School’s two math teams competed against 24 other groups on Pi Day at this year’s MoMathlon, which was hosted by the National Museum of Mathematics and Brookhaven National Lab.     

During the contest, the students competed in individual, team and mix-up rounds. As a result of their performances, Gelinas’ students earned top honors. Grant Yu, Benjamin Templeton, Rebecca Zhang and William Sun took first, second, third and fifth place respectively in the eighth-grade category while Nancy Zhong took first place in the seventh-grade category. These five students also comprised the team who took first place for the overall competition. Also competing and earning honorary mentions were Kevin Guo, Julia Zhu, Matthew Fiorella, Jake Butkevich and Neil Shady.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

The comical antics that followed the creation of a magical car unfolded on the stage at P.J. Gelinas Junior High School when student-actors performed the Long Island Premier of “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” this March.

The musical, based on the Ian Fleming novel and hit 1968 film, told the tale of an inventor who, unbeknownst to him, restored an old racing car into a flying vehicle capable of many heroic acts. Comedy ensued as devious characters attempt to seize the car for themselves.

This year’s production was directed by teacher Robert DePersio and included a pit orchestra predominately comprised of student-musicians.
