During the 2015-16 school year, Pine River 5th grade students have been competing in MOEMS, an international competition with thousands of students from across the globe.  MOEMS stands for Math Olympiad in Elementary and Middle Schools. It has been around for decades and is a well-respected program around the world.  Last season, approximately 150,000 students and 6,000 teams competed from 49 states in the U.S. and 30 countries around the globe. 

The math content in MOEMS is extremely challenging with a mix of high-level upper elementary, middle school, and pre-algebra concepts written in problem solving situations.  There are five contests each season in which students compete with each other across the globe.   Pine River Pioneers compete in the Elementary Division which is 4th-6th grade students.

Since September, fifteen students have been meeting an hour each week.  These students have demonstrated excellence in the classroom in math and during this competition.  Mr. Gary Griffin, 5th grade teacher and the MOEMS facilitator at Pine River, has been running this program for the past four years.  Our Math Olympians have an “appetite for excellence!”  This year’s Math Olympiad team consists of (back row left to right), Olivia Stoecker, Hadley Schwarz, Azalea Taube, Anna Dabelstein, Jack Betcher, Curtis Hutchins, Connor Essary, Braylon Essian, Michael Rancilio, (front row), Julia Rausch, Madeline Card, Lindsay Girard, Kellen Sullivan, Mac Garth, Ethan Hart, Frank Cole.

Belle River Elementary was lucky enough to have their field day videotaped including drone footage. Our thanks to Ryan Lehr and Jesse LaBuhn for this wonderful keepsake!
