π Day Competition Fundraises to Give Children Unforgettable Experiences

The Prep School Math Department celebrated π Day (3/14) with its annual "piathlon" on Monday 3/11 and Friday 3/15.  Students were placed in multi-grade teams to compete in a variety of events (Problem Solving, Tangrams, SET, π Recitation, and Logic Puzzles) in lieu of their regular math classes on Monday and Friday.  Each year, the event encourages friendly competition and learning between students of different ages, and the winning team gets to choose the charity to which proceeds from Student Government's π Day Bake sale will be donated. This year, Student Government raised $200 through their bake sale and the proceeds were donated to the Make A Wish Foundation.
