In addition, their school was given a matching grant of $6000. The students are front row from left, Amber Dunlap, son of Robert and Janet Dunlap; Rachel Ferrington, daughter of Ron and Amy McClellan; Russell Smith, son of Russell and Lisa Smith; back row, Braxtin Caine, daughter of Brian and Julie Caine; Dalton Menger, son of Tim and Shelly Menger; and Hunter Durian, son of Scott and Christine Durian.
Raytheon awards students who have demonstrated an enthusiasm for math and an understanding of the role it plays in the pastimes, hobbies, and sports they care about most. The Wausaukee students were asked to create multimedia presentations that illustrated the importance of math in their daily lives. The presentations were aligned with the new Common Core Standards, which emphasize literacy in all content areas. The matching grant is to be used for math-related equipment, materials, or expenses to enhance the math program at Wausaukee.
