Middle School Math Tournament

Last week, several of our middle school girls participated in the 9th Annual Girls Excelling at Math (GEM) competition, which was held remotely this year for students in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area.
The tests and challenges were difficult, and we are so proud of all of our girls who competed.  We are especially pleased to announce that our Grade 7 and 8 team of Ellery Blurton, Elise Klintworth, and Kinsley Verbrugge won first place in the Team Hands-On Engineering Challenge and first place in the Team Paper and Pencil event.  This is the third year in a row, and the second year in a row, respectively, that Covenant has won these events!  In addition, Ellery and Kinsley tied for second place in the Individual Event.  The Hands-on Challenge required the girls to build the highest tower possible to support 6 eggs using household recyclable materials -- check out the pictures with some of their amazing creations!
