John Edwards High School Celebrates 10th Annual Pi Day
For the City Times
On the afternoon of March 14, 2017, all 9-12 grade students celebrated Pi day.
Mathematically, Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, approximately 3.14, thus the celebration on or as close to March 14 as possible. Students spent the afternoon on Pi day doing a variety of activities associated with the number Pi.
The pre-calculus students and calculus students were the “teachers” of the activities for the rest of the student body. Activities ranged from “Pi” Day Races to “Pi” Lightning to a “Pi” Day Scavenger Hunt to “Pi” Dodge Ball to a “Pi”chological Murder Game.
All of the activities had to incorporate the number Pi in them somehow before playing the games. Throughout the afternoon, students were also treated to Pi Day treats of pies and cupcakes that students had brought in.
A big “Thank You” goes out to all of the students, parents, or grandparents who bought or baked the treats. Special thanks to Mrs. Rebischke, Mrs Bassuener, Mrs. Bruener, Mrs. Goodenough, and Mrs. Kiiskila for all of their work with the treats and helping to keep this part running smoothly.
Thanks also goes out to our math department of Mrs. Griffith and Mrs. Martin for all of their hard work in coordinating this effort.
