{February 23, 2017} ARNOLD, MO – 40 Fox C-6 students in grades 5-8 have advanced in the annual Equations Tournament held at the Fox C-6 Service Center. “Around 300 students participated in the event this year,” said Krystal Hargis, the lead teacher for the District’s gifted elementary program, REACH. “They are asked to answer some incredibly difficult questions in this tournament and we’re all very proud of how our students conducted themselves. Both the staff and our students look forward to this event every year.”

Of the participating students, 40 will move on to compete at the Regional Gifted Equations Academic Challenge Cup hosted by UMSL on March 1st. These students represent the top 20 5th and 6th grade as well as the top 20 7th and 8th grade students. “This is no ordinary math these students are asked to complete,” said Superintendent Jim Wipke. “To make it this far is already an incredible achievement.”
