Collage of photos from PWCS' Challenge 24 Tournament

PWCS students put on their thinking caps for the annual Challenge 24 tournament recently held at Beville Middle School. Sponsored by the Prince William County Office of Mathematics, the tournament allows students in grades three through five to practice and build a foundation of computational fluency in a fun and engaging way.

This year, seven schools participated: Bel Air, Chris Yung, Neabsco, Penn, and Potomac View Elementary Schools, The Nokesville School, and Porter Traditional School.

Thank you to the students, families, staff, and volunteers who made the event possible.
