Think Through {Math} Thursday!

Our 3rd-8th graders are getting excited about Think Through Math! Each Thursday we will post a list of the Lesson Leaders and Point Leaders of the week. We will also keep you up to date on the different Classroom Goals and the amount of actual money our students have donated to charities with Think Through Math.

This week's top 5 Lesson Leaders are
  • Wayside Middle School (6,365 lessons)
  • Willow Creek Elementary (3,687 lessons)
  • Ed Willkie Middle School (2,666 lessons)
  • Gililland Elementary (2,426 lessons)
  • High Country Elementary (2,379 lessons)  
The week's Point Leaders are
  • Wayside Middle School (367 K points)
  • Remington Point Elementary (154 K points)
  • Lake Pointe Elementary (130 K points)
  • Saginaw Elementary (97,642 points)
  • Eagle Mountain Elementary (88,885 points)

Classroom Goals are set by individual teachers and classes. Students work together to earn enough points for the party and Think Through Math provides the gift card to pay for it.We currently have over 50 classes working toward a $50 pizza party (from Domino's, Pizza Hut, or Papa John's) or a $50 Walmart Party.

Charitable Giving: Students have the opportunity to donate their points to several different nationally recognized charities. A 10,000 point donation represents a $1 donation to a charity of the student's choice.

Currently, our students have donated
  • $6 to PACER's National Bullying Prevention Center
  • $3 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • $2 to the America Red Cross/Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund
  • $2 to the Wounded Warrier Project
  • $1 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
  • $1 to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
  • $1 to World Wildlife Fund
Check back next week to see the new stats!
