Pi Day 2014

Desert Sage Elementary School

Pi Day at Desert Sage

Pi Day is an annual celebration commemorating the mathematical constant π. Pi Day is observed on March 14, since 3, 1, and 4 are the three most significant digits of π in the decimal form.

4th-6th grade students will participate in hands-on, interactive lessons to learn all about Pi and other geometry concepts. Students will start out in a Kick-off assembly and then move through rotations taught by 4th-6th grade teachers.

All students (K-6) are invited to join our Pi Day Family Pi-cnic on the playground. Students will enjoy their lunch and pies. (Guests must bring their lunch from home. Students may bring lunch or purchase from the cafe.)

Participation for K-3rd is decided by each teacher.


Please send in your store bought pie donations on 3/13/14 (Thursday) so we can plan accordingly. We prefer that you donate Hostess Fruit Pies since they are individually wrapped.

If you bring a whole pie, please help us by cutting into 8-10 slices. Donations will be accepted in the office. We would also appreciate your donations of forks, plates and napkins
