If you are interested in making a donation for our concessions stand, we still need bottled water, 12oz Gatorade (any flavor), candy and gum.

Enrichment Mathematics Club begins!
A new club opportunity is being offered for Reeds Brook Middle School students this fall. The club will take place across the street at the old, historic Hampden Academy building.  Enrichment Mathematics, jointly organized by MJETS and MMSETS, will be offered at the historic Hampden Academy on Thursdays, beginning October 30 through December 18, 2014 from 2:30 to 3:45 for Grades 6 -8.  

Students are exposed to an incentive program to grasp mathematics concepts with naturally motivating problems and curriculum relevant activity materials to enhance the learning of mathematics. The program is open to students of all levels.

Our Math & Logic class is based on the Singapore Math curriculum, the national teaching curriculum of Singapore. Singapore Math Curriculum is Coherent Curriculum followed by most developed nations.
