Local Kids Race to Finish Williams Grove’s Math Fact Challenge

  More than 400 area students accept the challenge for great prizes and School’s Out Night fun!

For the second year in a row, Williams Grove has sponsored the Math Fact Challenge. Elementary school children from three local schools (South Mountain Elementary, Monroe Elementary and Newville Elementary) were challenged to race their way to excelling in math. By completing ten minutes of math problems, over ten days, they would receive two general admission tickets for their parents for School’s Out Night on June 17th, 3-D fireworks glasses, a mood changing pencil, and entry into a raffle for a free Kindle Fire (one given out at each school).

The response in 2016 has been incredible. Across the three schools, more than 400 students stepped up to the plate to race their way to improving their math skills, which more than doubles the response in the first season of the challenge. South Mountain Elementary principal Jeff Clifton was very excited about Williams Grove’s efforts to reach out to their students.

"When Kevin approached me about having SME participate in the Math Facts Challenge, I was thrilled! We are offered many chances to participate in Reading incentives each year, but this is the first Math incentive we have been offered. The kids were enthusiastic about logging their practice in order to earn a ticket to the races. The Kid's Night was a great night last year, and I saw many of our kids there having fun."

Even local drivers jumped in to get involved, visiting the local elementary schools with their cars to tell the kids a little more about racing in this area, and challenging their knowledge of numbers with talk about speeds and race laps. Of course, getting a photo in the racecar was the most popular attraction.

Williams Grove always offers free admission for kid’s 12 and under, so the free tickets for School’s Out Night are intended for parents to bring their kids out to the races with little cost to them. With free admission and tons of fun activities for the kids, June 17th is sure to be a great night to celebrate students and their accomplishments over the past year.

Williams Grove Speedway encourages all families to bring their kids out to celebrate another great year, and kick off summer with a bang. Some of the activities will include bike and big wheel races, a driver autograph session, games, prizes, face painting, a bounce house and a grand fireworks display. Gates will open at 6:00 p.m. with racing kicking off at 8:00.

Congratulations to all of those students that completed the Math Fact Challenge this year!
