PTSA Math Enrichment at Redmond Elementary

The Redmond Elementary PTSA sponsors several programs for students who want to participate in math-related events, competitions and challenges throughout the year. The objectives of these programs are to increase student interest in math and provide opportunities for Redmond El students to pursue math outside the classroom.
