Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, approximately 3.14159.

South hosted its second annual Pi- day on March 14, 2023. The event hosted by the Math Honor society welcomed students from grade 7-12 in celebrating Pi-day by pieing their favorite teachers. With preparation beginning weeks in advance, the Math honor society asked members to submit math problems, categorized by grade, to be solved on stage. The event took place in South Hall after school with students lined up, eager to pie the staff. Students were called up on stage three at a time and asked a math problem by Mr. Lipsky. With 30 seconds to answer the students rushed to submit answers, if correct, the students were asked to step closer to their target and answer a final question. At this point, they were awarded a plate full of whipped cream to launch at their teachers. A fun-filled afternoon proved to be a great success and bonding moment between students and their teachers.
