Carroll's Latin Dancers take the Tidal Basin Stage at the National Cherry Blossom Festival

Our Leones de Oro Latin Dance Team added some Latin spice to the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival. On the 30th of March, the team took the Tidal Basin Welcome Stage to showcase Carroll's diversity and cultural acceptance through the art of dance. Most are more than familiar with the Salsa, Meringue, and the Tango, but few are as skilled at executing these beautiful, yet complex dance combinations as our Latin Dance Team. Donned in lilac pink dresses and black formal suits, the dance partners entertained a crowd of hundreds, just blocks away from the White House.

Career Day: Preparing our students for the future

An early-morning crowded foyer is an everyday occurrence here at Carroll, but on January 31, 2017 it was a little...different.

Battle of the Mathletes: Mega Math Marathon

As the hand on the clock nears 7 o'clock in the morning on a Saturday, two teams prepare to begin a national competition. This isn't a basketball tournament, nor a track meet...this is the Mathathon. Each year the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics sponsors the Moody's Mega Math Marathon Challenge, and the winning team receives $150,000 in scholarship funds toward their college education to be split between all of the participants. Each team was tasked with creating a solution to a real-world problem using mathematics, logic, analysis and persuasive arguments as to why their solution is a viable solution to the problem. The teams had until 9 pm to finish their solution, which couldn't exceed 20 pages. At 7 am, Engineering Program Director and Mathematics Instructor Mrs. Ming downloaded the problem, and the students got to work.

Senior Samuel Merga participated in the M3 Challenge last year, but felt he was, "ten times," more prepared going into this year's challenge. He spent time studying and practicing to lead his team to success, but that didn't shorten the process on Saturday.
