Math Madness!

Baldwin High School students have recently begun competing in Math Madness which is a national, virtual, math competition.

Each week, Baldwin competes against another high school from across the country in a 30 minute, round robin format consisting of 7 or 8 problems that increase in difficulty.

The top 5 scores from the team are averaged to determine the winners for each week and ultimately for seeding in the Championship brackets.

Championships begin the week of November 10 and are single elimination format.

In the first week of competition last week, BHS went up against Benilde-St. Margaret’s School from St. Louis Park, MN and lost in a very close finish.

On this particular morning the Highlanders defeated Crystal Springs Uplands School from Hillsborough CA.

Red Ribbon Week October 27- 31

Red Ribbon Week is dedicated to Federal Drug Enforcement agent Enrique Camarena, who was killed by drug traffickers in Mexico in 1985.

In response to his death, angered parents across the country began wearing Red Ribbons to symbolize their commitment toward the creation of a drug-free America.

In October of 1988, Congress officially proclaimed the first Red Ribbon Week. The Ribbon has now become the symbol for the drug free movement.

The week of October 27 – 31, 2014 has been designated as Red Ribbon Week in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District. Theme days for the week have been established and are consistent at all schools in the district.

We encourage students and staff to participate in the theme days to promote Red Ribbon Week. Parents should talk with their children about the dangers associated with drug and alcohol use and to reinforce the importance of living a drug free life.

If you have any questions or concerns related to substance abuse issues, please contact our Guidance Office 412-885-7500 ext 8067. We are here to help.
