Falcon Creek Middle School celebrates Pi Day

“It is math and pie, how can you go wrong?”

That’s how parent Alexis Juarez summed up Falcon Creek Middle School’s second annual Pi Day celebration, held on Saturday, March 12. More than 200 people took part.

“The best part of Pi Day is the way the community comes out to celebrate math and have some fun,” said math coordinator John Reid. “The excitement of the kids during the activities was very contagious.”

The fun started with a 3.14 mile run around the school. You could feel the energy as more than 100 pairs of feet hit the ground running, jogging or walking.

“Getting everyone outside and doing something physical is a great way to get the community together and to celebrate math,” said parent and PTCO secretary Kelly Job.

Those activities included a Pi scavenger hunt, Pi skyline game, and many other activities with a math-focus.

Jarod Beights, a former Falcon Creek student, said “The best part of Pi Day is the celebration of math.”

But current Falcon Creek student Katie Maclean, disagreed.

“The best part of Pi Day is the pie,” Maclean said.

Rhett Brodie covered in cream giving a thumbs up for pie day. More than 260 pies of every variety were donated by the school community for the Pi Day participants to enjoy. In addition, there was a pie eating contest and a pie throwing event where teachers were the targets.

“The best part of Pi day for me was getting some exercise outside and spending time with teachers, students, and families,” said math teacher Rhett Brodie.

“The community really came together and enjoyed a wonderful day in honor of math and all things Pi,” said assistant principal Lissa Staal.
