PBIS Reward Day
Students at Eunice Elementary were encouraged to dress as Albert Einstein, as well as decorating shirts to represent pi r squared. Dressed as Albert Einstein for his birthday recognition on March 14 is Parker Pedigo, Paul Guillory, Haiden Harigill and Aiden Lejeune.
Eunice Elementary celebrated the birthday of Albert Einstein by dressing as Einstein. On March 14, is the birthday of Albert Einstein along with the recognition of the math symbol pi r squared. The area of a circle is known as pi r squared, or 3.14159, so students were able to decorate their shirts with a pi r square problem or the symbol. Pictured is Yasmine Lemelle, Ms. Chelsee Fontenot, and Gerome White.
On March 13, Mr. Aurdi Bellard, a member of the Rotary Club went to Eunice Elementary to read to the students.They are celebrating La. Agriculture in the classroom. The La. Farm Bureau initiated this program to educate La. students about the importance of agriculture to them and their communities. Mr. Bellard chose to read "First Peas to the Table" to Ms. Courtney Richer and Ms. Rebecca Miller's 2nd-grade class. Pictured is Mr. Bellard with the second-grade students.

In Honor of Albert Einstein’s birthday and Pi day, March 14, Ms. Stelly and her student teacher, Ms. Ashley Newsom, encouraged their Glendale fourth grade students’ love of Math with many activities throughout the day including the story of “Sir Cumference and the Dragon of Pi” written by Cindy Neuschwander. Many students participated by dressing in fabulous “Math themed Shirts”. We also have some students to dress as Mr. Albert Einstein. The day concluded with a paper chain representing Pi while enjoying circular treats.
Mrs. Johnson’s third-grade class celebrated Albert Einstein’s birthday. Students were allowed to make their own “pie” shirts and do classroom activities that went with the theme.

OHS Celebrates Pi Day!
Ms. Richard’s math classes dressed up as Albert Einstein and learned about his impact and the impact that the constant Pi has had on math and science. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. 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 and it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. In 1988, physicist Larry Shaw organized what is now recognized as the first “Pi Day” celebration at the San Francisco Exploratorium science museum. Pi Day was officially recognized by Congress in 2009, and it’s inspired quirky and pun-filled celebrations, including eating circular treats, from fruit pies to pizza, as well as dressing like Albert Einstein, whose birthday serendipitously falls on the math-imbued day. San Francisco’s Exploratorium also hosts an annual day of pi-inspired activities. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology releases its undergraduate admissions decisions on Pi Day and this year, NASA is inviting math whizzes to compete in its “Pi in the Sky” challenge to solve a series of interplanetary math problems.
