Howards Grove Middle school students sent five teams to the Lakeland University Math meet this year! This is an annual Mathematics competition held in November, in which our middle school students have the opportunity to showcase their Math talent against area middle school students. Forty-seven teams (about 380 students) competed in the competition. Each team did an outstanding job and represented Howie Middle School well! Some students earned individual medals for their high scores.
Individuals that placed at the meet were Pierce Hoewisch and Jayden VanHelden, both 8th graders. Congratulations Pierce and Jayden!
