Arts fourth-graders are regional math champs

BEAUFORT – A second team of Beaufort County School District elementary-grade students has been named a regional winner of a seven-state problem-solving competition that tested students’ mathematics skills, reading comprehension and analytical reasoning.

The team of fourth-graders from Hilton Head Island School for Creative Arts beat out 27  other teams in the Region 4 Continental Math League competition, which included schools from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.  Out of 139 schools competing across the U.S., Hilton Head's fourth-graders compiled the nation’s fifth-highest score.

Earlier this month, a team from Red Cedar Elementary School was announced as winners of the fifth-grade regional competition.

The winning fourth-grade team from Hilton Head Island School for the Creative Arts was coached by Sandy Courtney and Christina Schaber. 

Courtney’s students on the team were: Olivia Brockway, Taray Childs, Jonah Coffey, Mia Ellison, Liam Fennessey, Alexandra Golshani, Adriel Hernandez, Trent Howard, Mia Jaquiss, Nolan Kabala, Kailyn Kenny, Samuel Knowles, Andrew Milbrandt, Natalie Miller, Abigail Moe, Jettie Nelson, Dylan Perez, Sarah Elizabeth Phillips, Danielle Ryan, Emmeline Saleeby, Rosemary Wommack, and Catalina Zolton.

Schaber’s students on the team were: Sunny Alsobrook, Charles Bagnulo, Angel Flores, Bryan Garcia, Phoebe Helms, Danna Hernandez, Johao Jimenez, Zachary Newton, Sawyer Norman, Caidence Reynolds, Paige Ross Roberts, Jacob Ruley, Stella Van Dee and Hailey Vicars.

“It’s exciting to have a second district team win this regional competition,” said Superintendent Frank Rodriguez.  “We congratulate the students and their teachers for their outstanding accomplishment.”
