Monday, March 14th, was the celebration of Pi Day here at RTHS.
Students and teachers alike (mostly math teachers) commended the irrational number all day with various fun activities.
These included activities such as:
The day started out just like any other, but when each student entered their math classroom, that all changed. Each math teacher held a competition of pi recitation among students. The individual student scores ranged anywhere from just the first 3 digits, to 510 digits. Winners were honored with bragging rights and a gratuitous piece of pie.
Out of the entire school, however, the winner would be able to throw a pie at Mr. Grunden’s awaiting face. When students knew about the amazing prize, they began memorizing as many digits of pi as they could before they faced the wall for recitation in math class.
Competition sure was fierce! First, we saw Reeha Nidarmarty come in 3rd place with 330 digits of pi recited! Then, Faaiez Mohammed topped Reeha with awhopping 400 digits. Finally, Jack Puryear came in 1st place with an astounding 510 digits! Jack received the honor of pieing Mr. Grunden after school at 3:55. But.. not before the ENTIRE school was rewarded for their hard work with a piece of pie!
