Avital Weinberg, a 10th grade Honors student at Midreshet Shalhevet, has made it to the final round of the international math competition, Ulpaniada. Avital is one of twenty students worldwide to reach this final stage of the competition.

Mr. Jeff Ganeles, Avital’s math teacher remarked: “I am so excited for Avital. All of her hard work and diligence has really paid off.”

When Shalhevet’s Principal, Mrs. Esther Eisenman, called Avital’s parents, tears of joy were streaming down their faces: “We are so proud of our Avital. She has always been so devoted to her school work and we are ecstatic that she has reached this final level. We are so appreciate of Shalhevet for helping her achieve her greatest potential and allowing her this wonderful opportunity.”

Avital herself was elated as well. “I’m thrilled to have made it this far in the competition and can’t wait to compete against the other girls in Israel.”

Mrs. Eisenman and the entire Shalhevet is rooting for Avital and are confident that she will succeed.
