This is where selected middle schools in HCPS was invited to lead in a coding day at the East Laburnum Recreation Center, on March 27th, with selected students that attended HCPS Elementary Schools.

The next opportunity, came as an invitation from Rivers Edge Elementary to attend their STEM night, which was scheduled for April 12th from 6pm to 7:30pm.

Congratulations to our Raiders who represented Moody at the state Math Counts competition on Saturday. The team placed 5th in the state, and both Cameron S. and Eric H. made the top 16 students to compete in the Countdown round. To get to the state competition, the team swept the top six spots in the Chapter competition on February 17th, earning spots for teams of 2 and 4 individuals to compete at the State competition. Students put a dent in the Northern Virginia historical hold on the top spots, so a huge accomplishment for these ‘Mathletes’. Thanks to Shekhar S., our parent coach, for his hard work and dedication, and helping students achieve this great opportunity to extend their Math knowledge.
