PAGE 8 THE PRESS APRIL 9, 2014 Photo: Submitted Above: Thirty4our Valley City State University freshmen were recently inducted into Alpha Delta Lamb- da, the national honor society for first-year students. Local students inducted into Alpha Delta Lambda at VCSU VALLEY CITY, N.D. -- The Valley City State University Sigma Lambda chapter of Alpha Delta Lambda, the national honor society for first-year stu- dents, honored 34 VCSU freshmen with initiation into the society at a ceremony held Sunday, March 9, in the Skoal Room of the VCSU Student Center. Alpha Lambda Delta is a national honor society for students who have maintained a 3.5 or higher GPA and who rank in the top 20 percent of their class dur- ing their first year or term of higher education. The society&apos;s purpose is to encourage superior academ- ic achievement among students during their first year of study. Alpha Lambda Delta was founded as an honor so- ciety for freshman women in 1924 at the Universi- ty of Illinois; men were first admitted in 1975. There are more than 260 chapters nationwide. In addition to the initiation of the new freshman members, chapter officerswere also installed at the initiation ceremony, and the senior members of Al- pha Lambda Delta who maintained the 3.5 GPA and top 20 percent rank throughout their academic careers at VCSU were recognized with Senior Honor Cords. ' Alpha Lambda Delta Freshman Initiates includ- ed Kaylee Johnson of Dahlen, N.D., and Jordan Midgarden of Park River, N.D. Change in vaccines required for seventh grade students next fall BISMARCK, N.D. -- Two vaccines that were formerly re- quired for students starting "mid- dle school" will now be required for students starting the seventh grade, according to Amy Schwartz, Immunization Surveillance Co- ordinator for the North Dakota de- partment of Health. ',Middle school" means different grades in different communities, which meant that tall students were not receiving the same vaccines at the same times. "These changes were made to standardize immunization requirements," Schwartz said. "We hope that requiring these vaccines for the seventh grade will be simpler for parents to re- member." Students must now receive the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acelhlar pertussis) and the MCV4 (meningococcal conjugate vac- cine) vaccines to begin the seventh grade, Schwartz indicated. These requirements are in addition to pre- viously-required immunizations. Parents are urged to check with their child's healthcare provider or local public health unit to make sure their immunizations are up to date well before school starts this fall. A complete list of school im- munization requirements and rec- ommendations is available at www.ndhealth.gov/Immunize/Sch ools-ChildCare/. Valerie Fischer, Director of Safe and Healthy Schools for the Department of Public Instruction, said it was important for students to be current on their immuniza- tions. "Diseases spread quickly in classrooms, so making sure chil- dren are immunized is the best way children against (1) tetanus, a dis- ease that causes muscle spasms and death; (2) diphtheria, an in- fectio0n that causes a sore throat, fever, swollen glands, muscle weakness and painful swallowing, and can result in death and (3) per- tussis, or whooping cough, which can cause uncontrollable, violent coughing and can result in death. The MCV4 vaccination protects against meningococcal meningitis, an inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord that can cause hearing loss, brain damage and death. "Currently in North Dakota, most children are immunized ap, to make sure they are healthy and propriately before starting school: ready to learn," Fischer said. Those who are not properly i The vaccines required for entry  munized are more at risk for de into the seventh grade protect veloping these preventable dis k children against diseases that are spread by bacteria. Because vac- cines have made these diseases rel- atively rare, it's easy to forget how serious they can be. The Tdap vaccination protects eases," added Schwartz. The mid- dle school immunization rates for Tdap and meningococcal vac- cines for the 2013-2014 school year were 72.4 percent and 69.8 percent respectively. The numbers game: Park River Area School math students excd in competition By Allison Olimb DD It takes a lot of extra work, besides of The Press 4 the work they do every day "in the PARK RIVER, N D -- Math can take you places, and that is classroom, to be able to succeed at something the students of Park River Area School have proven over the past months. For a number of students, their math skills have taken them across the state, even earning one student a trip to Flori- da. On Feb. 17, three teams of four junior high students (two each from seventh grade and eighth grade made the team) competed at the UND Math Track Meet at the Uni- versity of North Dakota in Grand Forks. Each person took a series of in- dividual tests, and then one team test where they were able to work to- gether. Their scores are then tallied and they compete against all Class A and Class B schools that attend. According to Park River Area math teacher Jonathan Berg, the results were really outstanding given they were competing against numerous Grand Forks schools, as well as all other area schools. "One of our teams ended up placing second overall in the junior high division, behind a Grand Forks school that always does well," he said. Eighth Grade team members were Jacob Ham and Charlie Thompson. Seventh Grade team members were Austin Branvold and Micah Setness. We had a clean sweep of the overall individual awards for eighth graders as follows: First place - Charlie Thompson Second place - Jacob Ham Third place - Julia Koppang Honorable Mention - Toby Zik- round On March 17 a team of ParkRiv- -er Area students headed to Bismarck for the state MathCounts competi- tion. The local MathCounts was held in Graflon during February and from this the school had a team and one individual advance to the state level in Bismarck. The team con- competitions such as these. It goes to show the dedication and responsibil- ity these students have as seventh and eighth graders to work on extra math problems that are not a part of their reg- ular assignment just to prepare and do well in these competitions -- most im- pressive on their part." sisted of four 8th graders: Jacob Ham, Charlie Thompson, Julia Koppang, and Toby Zikmund. Morgan Seim also qualified for state as an individual from the lo- cal level. "Unfortunately, Charlie was un- able to attend the state competition, so Morgan replaced him on the team so we ended up only taking the four to state," Berg explained. Like the lIND math meet, the students competed against all schools in the state (Class A and Class B), but this time including Grand Forks, Fargo and Bismarck schools among others. The team ended up placing sev- enth overall out of 16 teams, and had two individuals place in the top 10 overall at the state level. Jacob Ham placed seventh overall, while Julia Koppang placed fourth. The top three finishers were all from Far- go schools. With Julia's finish she will be moving on to the national level to represent North Dakota at the National MathCounts Compe- tition in Orlando, Florida coming up in May. On March 19, the largest group of students to compete went to the Tri-College Math Meet held at North Dakota State University in Fargo. A total of 32 students (four teams of eight) in grades six through eight took part in the event. The students all took an indi- vidual test first, then worked to- gether on a team test at this meet. Final scores were tallied from those two tests, but Berg said that he has not received final results for this competition as of yet to see where all our students finished for sure. "They did announce the top in- dividual and team scores right away though and Jacob Ham (eighth grade) was the first place finisher overall in the small school division (Class B North Dakota and small school Minnesota)," he said. "I be- lieve this is the second year in a row he has finished as the top overall stu- dent at his grade level at this meet, which is an unbelievable accom- plishment." When asked how students go about preparing for these competi- tions Berg said: "Students have multiple opporttmities to go through practice tests and problem sets from previous competitions to get an idea what the questions will be like and how to solve them. It takes a lot of exlra work, besides the work they do every day in the classroom, to be able to succeed at competitions such as these. It goes to show the dedication and responsibility these students have as seventh and eighth graders to work on extra math problems that are not a part Of their regular assignment just to prepare and do well in these com- petitions -- most impressive on their part."
