PRINCIPAL’S CORNER

Happy Belated Pi Day!  Pi Day is perhaps the quintessential middle school holiday.  First, it is pretty much made up. Second, it is super geeky, allowing the essence of middle school teachers to shine through.  And third, kids get to pie their teachers in the face and sing raps about numbers.  It doesn’t get much better than that in middle school terms!


Yesterday the entire student body was treated to an awesome assembly organized by Mrs. Bonnett on Team Altitude.  A group of brave souls kicked it off with a Pi Rap (I never would have had the guts to get up there when I was a middle schooler).  Then we had a contest to see which children had memorized the most digits of Pi--and were wowed by many, especially our winner, Chris Towne, with a whooping 83 digits!  Totally impressive from memory! Then teams competed in a Pi trivia contest. The winning members of the team (one from each of our school teams), along with Chris, each got to choose a teacher (or principal) to pie in the face.  I spent the day smelling vaguely of spoiled milk. And it was totally worth it, because it was a great way to kick off our Pi Day together! A huge thank you to Mrs. Bonnett, and to all of the awesome kids who participated!
