Elementary students take home trophies in Penn Manor Math Bowl

In a spirited competition involving students from all seven Penn Manor elementary schools, teams of fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders squared off in the Penn Manor Math Bowl.

Teams from Central Manor Elementary School took home the first-place trophy in all three grades, and Eshleman students claimed the runner-up trophy.

More than 75 students participated in the competition, which tests students’ general math ability and skills in solving multi-step and word problems and computations with and without a calculator.

The participants are the top math students from each school, so just qualifying for the math bowl is an achievement. Here are the results:

Fourth grade

  • First place: Central Manor team of IzEldeen Salem, Maryam Alfayyadh, Chloe Mummau and Kayla Joy.
  • Second: Eshleman team of Tristn Torres, Jett Kroesen, Seth Barret and Luke Devinney.
