Pi Day: It's Not Just for Math Class Anymore
Each year it seems like the activities shared to celebrate Pi Day increase exponentially! This year, March 14 falls on Sunday, but many of these activities can be done any day. Did you know that the celebration of Pi Day started at the Exploratorium in San Francisco in 1988? (one of my favorite museums) I have a page of Pi Day resources here, including this somewhat quirky Pi Day page.
MIDDLE LEVEL EDUCATION MONTH CONTINUES
Carrie Rosebrock, CIESC Professional Learning Specialist, and Sarah Henry, Secondary Science Administrator for Brownsburg Community School Corporation released their debut book titled Arrows: A Systems-Based Approach to School Leadership. It’s a personal story of a decade’s worth of growth and alignment within the Brownsburg Community School District. Unlike other educational leadership books, Arrows is the story of what happens when, not one school—but an entire district—simplifies its vision, clarifies its goals, and truly aligns its arrows.
