Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

May 11, 2015

 

St. Thomas defeated St. Bridget’s Thursday in Varsity baseball action by a 9-3 score.  The offense was led with extra base hits from Sonny McCool and Zach Plochoki and a big bases clearing triple from Kody Hanner.  Matt Cahill pitched a complete game and the defense settled down after a three run first inning to hold St. Bridget's scoreless for the remainder of the game.  The Tigers are now 1 and 1 with three games this week, starting with Mount Carmel on Monday (today) at Recreation Park.

Good Luck to the 2015 Mathcounts Team

Here's the letter that went out to this year's Mathcounts Team:

 

Dear Parents,

Congratulations are in order as Kody, Andrew, Dennis, and Emma have been selected to represent St. Thomas School in the 2015 MATHCOUNTS competition at the University of Hartford in West Hartford, CT.

MATHCOUNTS is a nationwide math contest for middle school students. Its mission is to increase the enthusiasm for and enhance achievement in middle school mathematics throughout the United States. Currently celebrating its 32nd anniversary MATHCOUNTS has helped more than 7 million students develop their mathematical abilities by tackling MATHCOUNTS problems.

This year’s regional competition will take place on Saturday, February 7, 2015 at the University of Hartford in West Hartford CT. ( Dana Hall building 4 on the map) Parking is available in Lot H. Students should be at the University of Hartford for 8:30 ready to start the competition at 8:50 a.m.

The competition should be done by 11:30.

St. Thomas School will be represented by one team of 4 students. These 4 students were selected on the basis of their work on the pre competition challenges that the students have been working on in class that were provided by the MATHCOUNTS competition.

Students should bring their calculators. They may dress comfortably. It will be a challenging day as this is a top middle school competition for students from the state of Connecticut.
Students will need to provide their own transportation to the University of Hartford and home. I will meet them there and stay with them for the day. Permission slips need to be signed and returned. Carpooling would be a good idea.

The members of the MATHCOUNTS team from St. Thomas School will be:

Andrew Cawley
Dennis Cawley
Kody Hanner
And
Emma Kief
