Welcome:
To Math Superstars, this program is designed to enhance your child’s journey through mathematics. Math Superstars is a math enrichment program sponsored by the St. Michael Catholic School PTO.

Our Mission:
To offer all students the opportunity to challenge themselves in all types of math concepts by providing additional learning activities.

Our Vision:
To give students of all ability levels a chance to extend themselves beyond the mathematics curriculum and become more confident in math.

Math Superstars is a wonderful mathematics and problem-solving enrichment program opportunity for students in grades K-8. All students are welcome to join the program. Participation, however, is strictly voluntary.

Students may download worksheets each week. Worksheets are due at the following Wednesday (see posted dates). Each problem is ranked according to its level of difficulty. The number of stars you see beside a problem indicates the level of difficulty. Volunteers will check the worksheets and they will be returned.

Parents role in Math Superstars is to encourage and facilitate your child’s problem solving skills. Feel free to suggest a strategy for solving the problem, offer counters or manipulatives, or listen as your child shares her or his thinking, but please DO NOT GIVE THE ANSWERS.

It is normal for a child NOT to be able to complete every problem on a worksheet. Remind your child that he or she is not expected to know the answer to every problem and this is a voluntary program.

Requirements:
Students who complete all five of the first 5 assignments will qualify for a free dress day on Thursday March 13 (which is March 14). Also, in honor of Pi Day, all students will be given an apple pie! Students who complete 8 out of the 10 assignments will be recognized at the end of the year and will receive an award.

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING YOUR CHILD TO EMBARK ON THIS MATHEMATICAL ADVENTURE!
