The Renzulli Academy celebrates Pi Day!

On March 14th students and faculty celebrated Pi Day with a variety of exciting activities!
In preparation for the celebration, students were challenged to memorize and recite as many numbers of Pi. Ricky Rojas was the winner for grades 4-6. Jovan Mercado was the winner for students in grades 7-9. Both scholars competed again at the celebration in front of the entire school. Ricky won by reciting 87 digits of pi!

During the celebration students, created a paper chain to represent the number of Pi. Each number was color coded, so students could see when a digit was repeated.

Vernisha Johnson and Danielle Begin, two eighth graders, performed a song about Pi at the assembly.  Also, some of the students in Kindergarten recited a poem about Pi in front of the entire school!
