Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to tell you that your child has been selected to participate in the Noetic Learning Math Contest (NLMC).  NLMC is a national math contest given by Noetic Learning.  The purpose of the contest is to inspire young students to excel in math and convey the message ‘It is COOL to be good at math!’ to students. 

Due to the spread of COVID-19 in our community, students in our school are going to participate in the contest online. Each student will be given a unique login and a link to the site prior to the test. 

Students will select a 50-minute uninterrupted time during the testing window Nov 11 – 24. As a parent/guardian, you will help us to protocol the test to ensure the integrity of the contest. Instructions about the online testing will be sent to your student in a separate email.  

The participation is voluntary. And we need your permission to release your student’s name to Noetic Learning. Attached is a permission slip. Please return it by [a specified date].
