NTI teacher Emily Colletta is proud to announce that two students were named national leaders in the CML (Continental Math League) competition. Brooke Bielec, a fourth grader came in the top 11 and Abigail Laski, a sixth grader came in the top seven. “They had perfect scores on all five of their math meets,” says Ms. Colletta. “This is a huge accomplishment and something we should all be proud of!”
The Continental Mathematics League has been motivating students to become better problem-solvers in multiple disciplines. It is national problem solving competition that requires students to complete timed, written tests.
Additionally NTI ranked number two in New York State in both 5th and 6th grade and fourth in 4thgrade. The teams from the 4th and 5th grade beat the Windermere Boulevard/Amherst competition! “We are so grateful to Mr. Woytila, our administration and the Board of Education for their support of the Gifted and Talented program,” says Colletta. “The students need opportunities like this and I am so happy to be able to provide them. We are looking forward to even more success next year!”
