Who doesn’t love pi? There’s apple pie, cherry pie, pizza pie, and π itself!
|Miss Simmons & Miss Wilson sure love Pi and their matching Pi day outfits!|
March 14th, or 3.14, is Pi day! Here at All Saints Academy we celebrate from preschool to eighth grade!
At the Lower Campus, the kindergarten, first, and second grades started their day with a fun Pi Day coloring picture! After morning prayer, they discussed what pi day is and all the fun that can happen when you study math. One second grader said, “Pi day is a day when you do math activities all day!” If only that was every day! To top off their extra math fun learning, they had a hula hoop contest with one student from each grade. Hula hoops are circles after all!

At the upper campus, the third and fourth graders worked on graphing the digits of pi and listened to an awesome powerpoint on the history of pi day! The fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth graders “discovered” pi by determining the ratio of the diameter of a circle to the circumference with a variety of different size circles.

Students at both campuses celebrated with circle treats! They also had the opportunity to listen to a fun math story, Sir Cumfrence and the Dragon of Pi.
