First ever Math-A-Thon raises $21,635 for Parents' Club

The success of the Parents' Club's first ever Math-A-Thon was due to diligent effort by students in all three divisions and all six Houses and countless hours of hard work by parent volunteers who planned and implemented the school-wide effort. The result was a $21,635 check made out to the Parents' Club, which supports Spartanburg Day School in many ways throughout the year.

Over the course of several weeks in January and February, students collected donations and pledges for completing math challenges. In total, 65 percent of the student body participated in the Math-A-Thon.
