The MAT induction ceremony will take place in the RHS library during fourth period. Your parents may attend, if they sign in as visitors in the main office around 11:45 AM. The ceremony will begin around 11:50 AM. New members will attend their 4th period classes for attendance purposes and to find out what they will be missing before heading to the library. Previous members will report directly to the library to help set up the tables, chairs, and buffet. Please wear dressy clothes, especially if you are a speaker. We would prefer no t-shirts, blue jeans, sweat pants, or athletic shorts, for example. We are planning to have snack and lunch items in the library, so you do not need to pack a lunch that day.
If you were already inducted, you will need to sign up in room A221 to bring beverages, a snack, or lunch item for 8-12 people. Bring the items to Mrs. Gillette’s room before school. Talk to Mrs. Gillette about items that need refrigeration or heating.
Seniors will need to give the following item (s) to Mrs. Gillette by April 22. 1) On a 3x5 or 4x6 card or paper, please write your name, college of choice, favorite math contest, favorite mathematician, favorite math theorem or concept, and an inspirational quote. 2) Please write a check for $5 to RHS if you plan to keep your MAT graduation honor cords following graduation.If you are being inducted this year, you will need to get two items to Mrs. Gillette by April 22. The first is a check made out to Revere High School for $32. This will cover the cost of a T-shirt and the national membership fee. The second item is a 3x5 or 4x6 card that contains your name, grade, cell phone number, email address, and T-shirt size (all neatly written) on one side. On the other side of the card, please list some of your Revere clubs, sports, activities, and/or academic pursuits. Also list your favorite mathematician and your favorite math theorem or concept!
