Our largest parent-led STEM program at Runnymede is The Amazing Math Race – a half-day, hands-on math activity for students in grades 1 – 3.
The Amazing Math Race runs during the school day in the last half of June. Note that while a full range of activities are already prepared for each grade, new ideas are always welcome.
As a Grade Lead, you would be working with 1 or 2 other parents to:
- ensure all materials are ready for your grade
- help recruit 6 parents to lead individual challenges at the event
- liaise with teachers, and
- be onsite the day of the event to ensure things run smoothly.
Being a Grade Lead is a great opportunity to interact with students and help them engage in FUN math. You also have the chance to meet and work with a great group of parents and to connect with teachers across both French and English programs.
* Grade 2 Lead Needed *

If you are interested in helping with STEM initiatives but unable to help as a Grade Lead, no worries! Perhaps you can help on the day of the event as a parent volunteer. Drop by our next meeting. New committee members and ideas are always welcome.
