Congratulations to the team of three Thornell Road Elementary School students who placed first among all fifth-graders in the statewide elementary school “First in Math” tournament on June 1, 2024, at the State University of New York at Albany. Coached by Jaya Madhavan, the students, Naveen Madhavan, Herene Shim, and Kazimir Povelaites, worked together to earn this first-place win for the second year in a row. 

Last year they placed first among all fourth-graders. This remarkable two-year win earned Thornell Road Elementary School a combined $12,000.
