Every year students who belong to The Math League at Bernards High School in Bernardsville, NJ, hold a Math-A-Thon to raise money to benefit other students in the Somerset Hills area. This year they raised $695 and decided to donate the money to The Matheny School to support and enhance our mathematics program.

Some of the Math League students and their teacher, LuAnn Faletta, came to Matheny recently to deliver the gift, visit with Matheny students and take a tour of the school. Afterwards, Faletta,  expressing her appreciation for the tour, added: “I have talked to so many of my colleagues about how wonderful your school is and how impressed we were with everyone. The students and teachers are very special.”
