Math Olympiad is an extra curricular activity that meets once every other week. Fourth and fifth graders are involved in discussing and working on problem solving techniques and strategies. The group meets from November to May with a district math competition as a culminating activity. The top three fourth and fifth grade problem solvers earn the right to represent Runyon at this competition. Some homework is involved with this activity. The purpose of the club is to provide a math enrichment opportunity for fourth and fifth grade students who love math and would enjoy additional challenge in problem solving.
The Math Olympiad Club will practice Math Problem Solving and prepare for the Math Olympiad Competitions. The top three fourth and top three fifth grade students will be chosen to attend the Littleton District Math Olympiad competition which is held early in May. We will also place an alternate at each grade level to attend the District competition should one of the three students be unable to attend.
New information coming soon from Mrs. Derksen our GT facilitator.
The 2016/17 school year Runyon Science Fair will be on Thursday January 26, 2017. The Science Fair is a fun, non-competitive way for Runyon students to discover new aspects of science. This event is required for all 5th graders, but is open to all other students grades K-4th. Parents' help is strongly encouraged! Each science fair participant will have a chance to present their project to a volunteer judge and will receive an award for their participation.
Students can sign-up and order display boards (if needed) by filling out a form (download below) and returning it to their teachers by December 23, 2016, or by e-mailing their intent to participate to runyonsciencefair[at]gmail[dot]com
Sign-up forms were also distributed by teachers in November. Adult volunteers to help setup, judge, and clean-up are also needed
Please contact Brady Clapsaddle at 303-396-4011 or runyonsciencefair[at]gmail[dot]com if you would like to volunteer or have any questions.

Student Conflict Managers
The Conflict Managers are a group of 4th and 5th graders who have been trained in conflict resolution. They attend a 5 day training period and then, are outside at lunch recess helping other children solve their disputes in a peaceful way. Thanks to our Conflict Managers who have made our school a great place to be.
Schedule for Conflict Manager Meetings:
There will be two meetings per week. The meetings will take place in a classroom from 3:15 to 4:00. Conflict Managers need to attend one of the meetings.
To Be Determined
The Runyon Student Council is an elected group of representatives that help make Runyon a helpful part of the community. They are students in grades 3-5 who are selected by their classmates for their positive attitudes and willingness to help others.
The Student Council meetings will begin in October.
