Belated Pi Day

Seventh grade students in the Whistletown Whelks Kiva at East Lyme Middle School hold a belated "Pi Day" celebration Monday, March 18, 2013. Due to Connecticut Mastery Testing last week students were unable to mark the day, which centers around the math concept of Pi, so events were postponed until Monday. Students created a giant U.S. flag out of pi symbols, an "American Pi", a photo of them with it will be sent to U.S. troops serving overseas sponsored by the students. Several students also competed to see who could memorize pi to the most places. Raven Cantwell won today's competition with 247 digits. The day concluded with a pie eating contest.
