Tri County School News

Ginger Pittmans sixth grade classroom used Friday, March 14th (3-14) to celebrate Pi Day. Pi is the Greek symbol used to represent the number for the circumference of a circle to its diameter, which is approximately 3.14. The digits to the right of the decimal point go on forever, with no pattern to the digits, so a contest was held to determine who could recite the numbers of pi the farthest. Bailey Waltke won this contest by reciting the number to 60 digits, and he earned the opportunity to throw a pie at principal, Jesse Gronemeyer. Other activities included a pi locker poster contest, t-shirt contest, calculating circumferences of circles outdoors, and of course, eating pie!
