Annual San Joaquin USA Math Steeplechase Continues to Add Up

Annual San Joaquin USA Math Steeplechase Continues to Add Up

Record number of children to compete this year! More than 600 children from eight schools in San Joaquin, Sacramento and Stanislaus counties will converge at the Alex G. Spanos Center on the University of the Pacific Stockton campus on April 18 to do math. But they won’t be sitting at tables just answering problems. They will be using tools, twine, buttons and other items to demonstrate how to do math. The students are competing in the 10th annual Math Steeplechase, a competition where teams of fifth-graders have to solve complex math problems in a matter of minutes. The event will start at 8:30 a.m. Parents are invited to watch the event, but are asked to not distract the children or blurt out answers. The event draws participants from San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Sacramento counties. This year’s new schools include Foulks Ranch Elementary from Elk Grove and Reese Elementary School from Lodi.

Raymond Case Elementary School Presents Disney's Aladdin Jr.

Raymond Case Elementary School Presents Disney's Aladdin Jr.

I sit in Raymond Case Elementary School multipurpose room ready to see Disney's Aladdin, Jr presented by the Raymond Case Drama Club. It's a full house. The lights dim to a beautiful made set of the marketplace Agrabah and palace where Princess Jasmine (played by Alex Taniguchi) is ready to battle with her dad the Sultan (played by Kevin Bali). The costumes, makeup and props are of a broadway show caliber. I think, "this is not an amateur musical" as the genie enters played by Annika Tamaki dressed in blue foundation asking if her pants make her look fat. The music and singing are excellent and the crowd cheers, laughs and comes to there feet as the final act ends.~~Janine King
