Congratulations to David

At the Square Jam on August 6, the Friends of the Sharon Public Library invited everyone to guess how many jellybeans were in a large jar at their table.  Many people tried and many guesses were close, but the closest by far was David's, a soon-to-be third grader at Striar Hebrew Academy. His guess of 1458 was just 5 away from the actual number of 1463!  For his mathematical prowess he earned a gift certificate to Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt, courtesy of the Friends of the Sharon Public Library.  David will be entering third grade at Hebrew Academy of Sharon (SHAS) in the Fall where he will proudly thank his teachers for helping him understand the importance of estimation.
