Pi Day Celebrated at Chesterton Middle School

cms-pi-dayThe Chesterton Middle School seventh grade math department celebrated their seventh annual Pi Day this year by reading books to the students, researching the history of Pi, participating in a variety of 'irrational' activities, and the crowning of the Queen, King, Princess and Prince of Pi Day from each math class.

Pictured are royalty winners from each class donning their Pi crowns, front seated, left to right, Elli Didonna, Evelyn Pabon, Travis Biancardi, Tanner Berardi, Devin Trusty and Hollie Jones. Back, math teacher Linda Didelot, Marney Sisson, Brooke Wilson, Madison Ghoreishi, Isaac Beatty, Assistant Principal Mike Okeley, Nick Harmon, Brice Petre and math teacher Suzanne Amling. Absent from the photo is math teacher Kim Connelly. Students competed in the crown-wearing contest by reciting as many digits of Pi as they could remember and some students participated in a word search that contained words related to Pi. The CMS student who memorized the most digits of Pi was Marney Sisson with an amazing 169 digits of Pi followed by Nick Harmon with 150 digits. Pi Day would not be complete without the eating of real "pie" as a culminating activity. The CMS seventh grade math teachers sponsor this event each year.
