I'm so excited to be teaching your child again in 4th grade, or if new to ALM, I'm looking forward to teaching your son/daughter for the first time. There will be a few changes this year. Your son/daughter will now have the opportinity to participate in are The Stock Market Game and the Math Olympiad Competition. The Stock Market Game will begin in the fall and carry through until spring. It is a fabulous way for students to learn the Stock Market and compete against students their age throughout the United States. Another enrichment your child will participate in this year is The Math Olympiad Competition which is open for students in ALM4 and 5 and lasts five months beginning in November. Once a month, students compete in the competition individually by solving challenging multi-step problems.
