Fourteen third- and fourth-grade students at Gotham Avenue Elementary School have been named Outstanding Math Students for their ability to apply mathematics to real-world situations. Students were selected based on their talent for solving problems that blend mathematics and technology; a skill that is growing ever more valuable in a world that is constantly changing and embracing new scientific advancements. Preparing students for a bright future is an integral part of the district’s mission, and recognizing its shining stars is one of the ways the district aims to increase student achievement. February’s Outstanding Intermediate Math Award recipients are Veeren Armogan, Christian Butron, Clay Carbon, Varnel Fleurisma, Almas Hussain, Danielle George, Gopan Kumar, Jonathan Montano, Sheila Nieto, Jesus Reyes, Kristan Singh, Zainab Soetan, Malcolm Walker and Stephan Walker.


The mission of the Elmont Union Free School District is to “reach and teach for excellence,” which means continually improving instruction and increasing student achievement. Dedication to this goal is what has earned Elmont New York state recognition for its “High Performing/Gap Closing Schools,” and as a state “model for school success.” In partnership with the community, the district holds its students to the highest standards
