ANNUAL PI DAY RECITAL
Hawthorne's 8th Pi Recital was held on Friday, March 13, 2020. During our 2020 contest, over 50 students stretched their brains and tried to memorize MANY digits of Pi (3.1415926535...), which is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th (3/14).
The students who recited 20 digits (or more) will be recognized by National and International Pi Registries. The top reciters each memorized at least 45 digits! Laina Drabic, a 4th grader, came on strong with a school high of 405 digits recited! Rounding out the top 14 are Brenner Harges (235), Tyler Tatman (100), Jaiden Shah (81), Zach LeMar (77), Maeve Wicklow (72), Michael Dorko (71), Connor MacLeod(55), Catherine Breen (52), Stella Rosso (51), Mackenzie Stull (50), Lyla Crowley (47), Jack Shultz (46), Avery Hronek (45), and Donovan O'Connor (45).
Our brains are amazingly stretchable with such a great capacity so keep exercising them!
