Math Pentathlon is a volunteer-run after-school program that practices math skills and logical reasoning. We use games to strengthen basic math skills, develop good sportsmanship, and foster creative thinking. For more information, check out the Math Pentathlon web site.

Volunteering

The program will only be successful with significant volunteer participation. Please let us know if you would be willing to volunteer below. Limited spots are available on the team. Children will be given selection priority based on the frequency with which their parent signs up to volunteer. For example, first priority will go to the children of coaches, then to children of weekly volunteers, and successively down the line. So to ensure your child has a spot in the program, please sign up to volunteer more frequently, if possible

As a volunteer you may be asked to:

  • Watch the kids during the break time on the playground
  • Sit with students to help keep them focused during explanations and game play.
  • Escort students to the Bathroom
  • Clarify rules during game play.
  • Sit and play a game with a student.
  • Check out and check in games

We need your full attention for our Pentathletes so if you have smaller children please arrange for alternate care or bring something they can work on independently.

Exceptions will be made in rare instances that it is not possible for either parent (or nanny, grandmother, or other substitute) to volunteer. Thank you for helping make our volunteer-run organization keep working!
