BISD: Academy at C.F. Thomas Elementary Team Wins Young Mathematicians’ Award
Teams from Birdville ISD’s North Ridge Elementary and the Academy at C.F. Thomas (ACFT) recently participated in the Grand Final of the 2017 Young Mathematicians’ Awards contest held inside the Microsoft Store at North Park Center. This event was sponsored by Explore Horizons. These teams represented two of the top five finalists. All participating teams were winners from the previous Regional level at one of the Explore Horizons centers. Each finalist team received a medal from Explore Horizons and a swag bag from Microsoft. The ACFT team won the Grand Final competition and received a trophy for their school, as well as awards for the individual team members. Teams in this competition are comprised of fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students. Both Birdville ISD teams were composed of only fourth-graders. Following the competition, the judge for ACFT said, “I am beyond proud of these four young gentlemen and of the exceptional character of positivity and integrity they portrayed.” Alyssa Dunnahoo and Audra Garner were the teachers/sponsors for these two teams.
