The Renzulli Academy Celebrates Pi Day!
Spotlight on Excellence April, 2013
The Renzulli Academy celebrates Pi Day!
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.

Students that donated canned goods were eligible for a PI eating contest, as well as the chance to throw a whipped cream PI at their teacher!
