ACES is Making a Big Splash on Study Island



By Jennifer Kemp & Alice Curry

Adair County Elementary School students are racking up major yardage on the gridiron this fall with our Study Island Math Bowl.

Students are going head to head with homerooms battling it out in this football-themed competition to be the 2017-18 Math Bowl Champions. Students are mastering math concepts to earn blue ribbons for their homeroom, which equals yardage on the football field.


Study Island is a web-based program designed as a supplemental educational tool geared specifically to our KY state standards. This program is research-based and highly successful in improving student academic achievement.

To encourage student excitement and participation, ACES went all out to kick off the Math Bowl with special guests. Some ACHS football players and cheerleaders came to help motivate students with Study Island themed chants and cheers. Coach Clay Stephens explained the different elements of math used in football.

Students were surprised with a theme song and video for our program. A local musician recorded a new version of the Monday Night Football theme song by Hank Williams, Jr. especially for our program, while ACES teachers showed their theatrical talents to go along with the song.

ACES is receiving recognition on social media for the creative Math Bowl idea. Study Island got word of our competition, kick-off, and video and has posted it on their social media outlets. Through Study Island, several schools in and out of KY have been viewing our program.
