Pi Day Celebration at Hawthorne

Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th (3/14). At Hawthorne's 6th Annual Pi Recital, 143 students in grades 1-5 stretched their brains and memorized digits of Pi (3.1415926535...), which is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. 


Hawthorne's 2017 top reciters memorized over 100 digits of Pi: Gio Santoro (413), Max Wickenkamp (229), Mark Stukel (221), Niko Stathopoulos (171), Caroline Fischer (161), Kailin Mendiola (160), Joey Rinchiuso (146),  Will Fischer (126), Anna Filosa (120), Saveen Shah (118), Matt Lizak (114), Clara Fitzer (104), Libby Donaldson (104), Kennedy Mirante (103), and Alexa Klein (101)!
 

In addition, top primary students were George Redfearn, Grade 3 (58), Jaiden Shah Gr 2 (50), and Michael Dorko Gr 1 (30).
 

Our brains are amazingly stretchable with such a great capacity so keep exercising them!
