Math Field Day

The Rotary Club of Indio will be hosting the annual Math Field Day at John Glen Middle School on May 13, 2017.  This program was started by our late member John Benoit and his wife, Sheryl over 20 years ago.

Each year we invite 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students from throughout the Coachella Valley to participate in math contests at John Glen Middle School on a Saturday morning.  The winners of these contests receive ribbons, trophies and gift cards and the school that has the most winning math students wins a large trophy for their trophy case at the school.
The day starts with our furnishing the students with breakfast bars and water to start their day.  At lunch we furnish them with sandwiches, chips and water.  At the end of the day there is an assembly where the awards are given out to the students and schools.
This event could not happen without our many sponsors, teachers and volunteers who give up their time to help these students receive an infusion of enthusiasm for the world of math and science.  Our hope is that this enthusiasm will continue through college and into their careers to better our world.
If you would like to help defray some of the costs (for the food, water and prizes) for the children you can make donations to:
