Members of the Lewis F. Cole Middle School Math Team earned fifth place honors at the Math Counts Bergen-Hudson Regional Competition on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013 under the direction of Ms. Sumedha Kumar, coach and facilitator of the program. 

Math Counts is a challenging and competitive math program that promotes middle school mathematics achievement for students in grades 6th – 8th grade.  Each competition consists of four parts; the sprint, target, team and countdown rounds.  The competitions are comprised of four levels:  school, chapter, state and national.  The students will be competing again in mid-March in the State Competition.

Fort Lee can be very proud of these students! Another example of the quality of students attending our schools and the dedication and excellence of their teachers. Please let us know if spectators are allowed at and also when and where the state competition is. Wouldn't it be great if we could cheer Fort Lee's finest on. Go get em.

Thank you Ann for writing about this. Fort Lee has much to be proud of despite the dysfunction in the superintendent's office and at the level of the BOE. By highlighting the good things that are happening at the micro level, the achievements being made despite the problems, we will do a great service to the students and to the town. For example, there have been lots of improvements at the high school in the last couple of years, and we should support and publicize them. Thanks again.
