Farmingville, NY - At the June 15 Town Board Meeting, Councilwoman Jane Bonner (fourth from left) honored Christopher Barton (center) from North Country Road Middle School in Miller Place. The 5th grade student participated in the 2017 MathCon National Online Math Competition, an online math competition for students in grades 5 to 12 with grade-level specific timed tests of 45 multiple-choice questions in 45 minutes. In the North East region, Christopher had the fifth highest score out of all 5th graders and highest score of any child who attends a public school. The four students that finished above him all attend a special STEM school in New York City.

Councilwoman Bonner said, "Christopher's extraordinary achievement sets a great example for his peers about how success is the result of hard work and dedication. I congratulate him on being a finalist and I'm sure that his family, friends and teachers are very proud of what he has accomplished."
