Congratulations to Port Jefferson Middle School sixth grade students who placed in the Suffolk County Math Teachers’ Association Contest. Student Isabelle Chen tied for second place in all of Suffolk County, Alice Snyder tied for third place in the county and Emily Snyder and Mark Marinescu tied each other for fourth place.

“It is a very competitive test and these students were up for the challenge,” sixth grade math teacher Melissa Corey said. “Contests like this help them continue to foster an interest in mathematics while they gain a better understanding of the subject matter,” added Megan Ryan, also a sixth grade math teacher.
