CCLS Math Team won team and individual awards

Dear Parents,

    CCLS Math Olympiad students have a tradition to form a competition team each year and take great challenges to win honors for CCLS. On Jan 27, 2018, CCLS sent three Math teams (twelve students) to 2018 Exeter Math Club Competition (EMCC). Out of 70 strong teams including some famous middle schools from China, our CCLS Math Team One had finished 1st place in the Team round and the Guts round and 2nd place in the Sweepstakes round under instructor Dr. Shanhong Ji. Members of CCLS Math Team One are Eric Yang, Andrew Lee, Arianna Li and Henry Zhao.

     In the individual competition, out of 300 competitors Eric Yang and Andrew Lee earned 1st and 2nd places. We are all very proud of their hard work and achievement. 

     Congratulations to our Math Olympiad teacher Dr. Shanhong Ji and his students.
