Pi Day

Today, March 14 (3-14) is Pi (3.14) Day and also Albert Einstein’s Birthday.  Activities across our schools today involve fun activities such as dressing up like Einstein, throwing pies, eating pie, reciting as many places in Pi as possible, pizza pie contests, wearing Pi shirts, etc.

Extraordinarily, Fifth grader, Kaitlyn Snuffer, memorized and recited Pi out to 257 places this morning.

I think it’s important to celebrate Pi Day because this is one more attempt by our professional educators to model for students the importance of science, technology, engineering, and math. - Superintendent Eberhardt

This is Madison’s third year of math celebration on March 14. 

Interesting fact:  If you hold a mirror to a circle, it looks like a circle. If you hold a mirror up to Pi (3.14) , it spells PIE!
