Math Bee Success
Five OCCS students from sixth grade participated in the NW Iowa Regional Math Bee on Friday, April 13. Participating students included Landon De Jong, Carson Noteboom, Rebecca Philipsen, Levi Rosenboom, and Jocelyn Muilenburg (team-round member). The OCCS team came in 1st place this year, with Carson and Landon finishing in the top 20, Levi Rosenboom finishing in 2nd place overall, and Rebecca Philipsen finishing in 1st place, to continue her 1st place record from 4th and 5th grade math bees held at Dordt College. 7th and 8th grade teams will prepare to participate in a Dordt-sponsored math bee in May. Thank you to the math bee participants for representing OCCS so well, and to Kim Philipsen for her work coaching the team this year.
Congratulations, 6th grade math team!
