North Berwick Students Score Top 10% in National Math Contest

This fall, three students from Mrs. Carter’s third grade class at North Berwick Elementary School participated in the Noetic Learning Math Contest: a national contest for students grades 2-5. Over 4,000 students representing 262 teams participated in the contest.
Madison Momenee, Jackson Hett, and William DoByns from North Berwick Elementary School scored in the top 10% and were put in the National Honor Roll. William DoByns tied for 1st place in the nation, missing only one problem.
These students met after school to practice and prepare with their teacher before taking this challenging test. These students will be participating again in the spring with the hope that they have inspired their classmates to stretch themselves and participate with them.
