Pi Day Information

Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts around the world on March 14th (3/14). Hawthorne’s 9th Pi Recital Week ended March 12th with nearly 50 students stretching their brains to learn MANY digits of Pi (3.1415926535...), which is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Students who knew 20 digits (or more) will be recognized by National and International Pi Registries. The top reciters this year at Hawthorne each knew at least 40 digits! Brenner Harges, a 4th grader, came on strong with 306 digits! Rounding out the top 14 are Michael Dorko (166), Tyler Tatman (159), Audrey Tatman (107), Zach LeMar (83), Yash Parti (82), Grant Furlin (75), Brielle Hernal (58), Sofia Furlin (51), Miles Dalley (50), Jim Kanel (50), Kieran Peot (46), Maddie Schleich (46), Brynn Asgedom (40), Avery Hronek (40), and Kai Ostermann (40). 
Congratulations to all of the students who tried stretching their brains with this fun activity.
