Earl Warren ‘Pi Day’

Earl Warren Middle School held a fun-filled, innovative and tasty “Pi Day” March 14.

Students could choose to participate in seven stations in the quad with a carnival-like feel:

Eat pie: Each student received a slice of Cost Co apple pie.

Guess the circumference and area: A big chalked circle and there was a winner who guessed the closest circumference and a winner who guessed the closest area.

Pi digit reciting: Students chose to compete to memorize digits of pi. The winner this year (an Earl Warren record) 231 digits and second place prize winner for 116 digits.

Pi digit scramble: Kids compete head to head in seeing who is the fastest at ordering the digits of pi (to 10 decimal places). Winners get a pi pencil.

Pie throwing at teachers: Two raffled off tickets per math class (44 total) for students to choose which teacher/staff member they get to throw “pie in the face.”

Earl Warren staff participated in being the judges at the “Student Pie Bake Off,” which had prizes for four categories: Best tasting fruit, best tasting cream, best appearance fruit, and best appearance cream.
