Pi Are Square (Not)
Saturday, 13 April 2013

April 13-- Toombs County High School celebrated an important celebration all across the world: Pi Day! Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Students in various math courses at TCHS watched videos, completed hands on activities, and ate lots of pie to celebrate Pi Day. Students also voted for a Pi King and Queen. Students unanimously chose Mr. Shane Griffin, TCHS math teacher, and Dr. Middlebrooks, TCHS principal, as their first annual Pi King and Queen.

ImageStudents gathered in the gym on March 29, 2013 to crown their King and Queen. Mrs. Lashley and students provided entertainment with their own rendition of the TCHS Pi Harlem Shake. LaKayla Faison blew students’ and staffs’ minds by memorizing the most digits in Pi – over 100 digits! Finally the students were able to watch their senior vice president, Samantha Shatto , pie Mr. Griffin and the junior vice president, Damian Thrower, graciously pie the principal Dr. Middlebrooks!

The Math Department would like to thank all of the student and teacher volunteers who participated in our first annual Pi Day Celebration!
