"Math masters" get honored at Lasalle Intermediate Academy
Some South Bend students got an “A” for effort today, at Lasalle Intermediate Academy.
Last year, 100 percent of the then fifth-grade class passed the math portion of the I-STEP.
Teachers told ABC57, it took a lot of hard work and determination on the part of both students and teachers.
Their hard work paid off, and the kids were honored at a special assembly.
Ann Marie Lotridge, one of the fifth-grade math teachers said, “I was tearing up in the gym just watching the kids out there being honored for such a remarkable achievement."
Everyone in the class also got a T-shirt that says “100 percent math masters” on the back.
