Ten eighth grade UMTYMP students are using their math study hall time to meet with the Plymouth Creek Elementary kindergarten classrooms housed at CMS, twice a week this spring.
The eighth grade students assist kindergarten students as they work on various math activities. The partnership has been a huge hit with everyone involved, and both parties look forward to the time they spend together. While having sections of kindergarten at CMS this year was a short-term fix for our growing district, it allowed for a very unique mentorship opportunity.
8th Grade Mentors are Ashmita Sarma, Cara Fragomeni, Christine Luo, Elizabeth Stewart, Gauri Binoy, George Zhu, Mina Yuan, Nick Kessler, Samyak Jain, and Shamily Jadhav.
A special thanks to the kindergarten teachers at CMS, Ashley Gibbs, Jennifer Schmidt, and Caitlin St. Clair for their help making this possible.
