School Ops:

Among other things, Mu Alpha Theta tutors students in all levels of math throughout the year and actively competes in national contests. Students interested in joining need to have completed one math class, Algebra I, (along with current enrollment in a second math class) with a GPA of at least 3.25 with respect to their math courses. Anyone interested in joining should contact Mr. Mark Waxmonsky (mark.waxmonsky@knoxschools.org).

Follow effective action with quiet reflection.  From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.
