Math Olympiad adds up to fun for UCS students
It all adds up to a great afternoon with friends for UCS elementary students who participated in the annual UCS Math Competition.
Nearly 260 fourth through sixth graders gathered earlier in the school year to take part in the afterschool event at Utica High School.
The top award winners were honored June 22 by the UCS Board of Education.
The local competition mirrors the national Math Olympiad tournament, requiring students to complete higher-level math problems in individual and team competitions.
More than 50 teams took part in three different competitions, including a jeapordy-like tournament that rounded out the night. For organizers, the goal of the event was to show students that challenging themselves with math problems can equal a fun time. MORE.

UCS means Success for this year’s graduates and all those to come
Utica Community Schools has sent more than 2,200 new graduates out into the world this year.
They are leaving our schools with a wealth of experience, bold determination, a sense of optimism about their futures and that extra something known to our community as UCS means Success.
