Jace Jolicoeur, a 2nd grade student at Heritage Christian School in Lindsay, recently took 1st place in the worldwide Caribou Math Contest.

Jace achieved a perfect score and placed in the first percentile worldwide, beating the average time and score overall. “I feel very proud of myself,” he shared.

Jace’s principal, Lonneke Brown adds that the team at Heritage Christian School is “very proud of Jace’s determination and willingness to try new things, and challenge himself as he develops his math skills. We are very excited for his success.”

The Caribou Mathematics Competition is a worldwide online contest that is held six times throughout the school year. Each of these days, six contests are offered, one for each grade level and each one in English, French, Persian, Mandarin, Ukrainian and Azerbaijani.

“Jace has a natural inclination towards math so when a family friend recommended this contest we decided to check it out,” says Jace’s mother, Laurie Jolicoeur. “With the caring environment and smaller class sizes, it’s one example of how Heritage can support students where they are at in their educational journey.”
