There is a registration fee of $30 dollars and students are required to purchase a calculator. This money can be taken out of your allotment. If you have questions or you are interested in having your student participate in MATH CLUB, please email Contact Teacher Mary Ekblad, mailto:mary.ekblad@ideafamilies.org Find out more about Math Counts at: http://mathcounts.org/ Staff sponsor is Contact Teacher Mary Ekblad.
