Pi Day Celebration –
Since next Tuesday is March 14 (3.14), every math class will be celebrating Pi Day.  If students would like to bring in any circular treat to share with their math class that day, they are encouraged to do so.  Ask your son or daughter for how many students are in their math class because that number varies by each student.  So excited to celebrate Pi!
