Students currently in 8th grade had the opportunity to visit the high school on March 25. These incoming high school students spent the afternoon rotating through the various CTE area (career-technical education). Ms Frank, Ms Hawkins, Mr Emery, Ms Rozeboom, Mr Haug, and Ms Crowley had students complete activities related to their area as they talked about different classes the 8th grade would be able to register for as freshman.
March 14th is NOT just an ordinary day in the math world. It’s Pi Day! This year Pi Day was especially significant, as it fell on 3/14/15, which also happen to be the first five digits of Pi.
On Monday, March 16th, fifth grade math students celebrated this important “once in a century” day. We began our celebration with a contest to see who could successfully recite the most digits of Pi from memory. Pi is a never-ending decimal with no pattern-thus making it very difficult to memorize. Our overall winner was Anna Sauer, who recited 119 digits!
After the contest, students created unique Pi hats from paper plates. Students then had the opportunity to discover how Pi really works. All students measured the circumference and diameter of a pie. When they divided the two numbers, they got an answer of 3.14! Class ended with a feast of more than 70 pies that were brought in to eat and enjoy!
