Math Pentathlon is a volunteer-run after-school program where kids play board games with friends! We use engaging games to strengthen basic math skills, develop good sportsmanship, and foster creative thinking. There is an opportunity to play pentathletes from other area schools at Math Pentathlon Tournaments in the spring. For more information, check out the Math Pentathlon website or email [email protected]. We support our volunteers – you do not need to be a math wiz to help! Membership is open to all grades (K-5).
Summit 2023-24 Math Pentathlon teams are forming! Email [email protected] to get more info and to express interest in joining MP.
MP Registration will open in August/September 2023. Acceptance will be based on level of parent/guardian volunteerism (grandparents or other family members welcome to fill this role too!).
Congrats to our 2022-23 Math Pentathlon team! We look forward to welcoming new and returning friends to Math Pentathlon next fall.
Math Pentathlon meetings will be once a week in the evening. MP season runs from mid-October through February with the opportunity to represent Summitt at tournaments in April and May.
Call for Coaches
Let us know if you’d be interested in coaching and for which division! Each group will be 12 students and 4 coaches. We coach in pairs – we support our coaches! No experience required.
Why be a coach?
We’ve had a lot of positive feedback about how rewarding it is to be a coach! It’s awesome to watch our kids grow and interact in game playing with their peers, spend time at our school, and get to know other Summitt parents.
Bonus! Kids of coaches have their admission ensured.
The cost is $30 for the year per student and scholarships are available. Dues are waived for children of coaches.
Math Pentathlon runs on volunteer power! In addition to coaches, we need additional volunteers.
As a volunteer you may be asked to:
- Sit with students to help keep them focused during explanations and gameplay
- Clarify rules during gameplay
- Sit and play a game with a student
- Help wrangle students at the end of the meeting
- Distribute snacks
We are looking forward to welcoming new and returning Summitt Math Pentathletes. Game on! Questions/Suggestions? Email [email protected]
