AMC-8 Schools at Bard

The AMC-8 exam is tomorrow, and our event has grown even beyond what we were expecting! A few weeks ago we had to start a waiting list, but then ordered more test packets to increase our capacity. So, no more waiting list! 

We will be able to accommodate last-minute arrivals, so please encourage your friends (and friends' children) to join us! (They'll have to fill out waiver forms when they arrive.)

We currently have over 50 students registered for the AMC-8 competition, from all over the area! Here's a list of schools represented:

Bulkeley Middle School, Rhinebeck
J. Watson Bailey Middle School, Kingston
Linden Avenue Middle School, Red Hook
M. Clifford Miller Middle School, Kingston
Germantown Central School, Germantown
Rondout Valley Middle School, Accord
Ichabod Crane Middle School, Valatie
Union Vale Middle School, Lagrangeville
Chatham Middle School, Chatham
Faith Christian Academy, Poughkeepsie
High Meadow School, Stone Ridge
Mill Road Elementary School, Red Hook, NY
North Park Elementary School, Hyde Park
Orville A Todd Middle School, Poughkeepsie
Our Montessori School
Taconic Hills Middle School, Craryville
Vail Farm Elementary School, Lagrangeville

We do ask everyone to arrive on time, as we'll start the competition soon after 4pm. Don't bring your calculator - they are not allowed.

Parents will have the opportunity to meet with Bard Math Circle organizers while their children are taking the exam. After the competition, we'll have an exciting math presentation from Bard math professors Jim and Maria Belk.
