San Domenico School News & Events

Pi Day Celebrated with Numbers and Pies

While the San Domenico School math program is designed to help students develop their understanding of mathematical concepts and apply those principles to real world situations, there is also some serious creativity and fun in the teaching and learning.

Students recited the digits of Pi at the weekly Zoomtopia meeting amid lots of cheers and laughter. For the contest, 14 students participated, and the event culminated with the honor of throwing pies in teachers' faces! Also, all students who memorized at least 50 digits earned a point for their Spartan/Athenian team. Enjoy the video above, and a link to photos here. Congratulations to the following participating students:

  • Aiden Gray, Seventh Grade
  • Alexis Weidner, Sixth Grade
  • Aubrey Marne, Sixth Grade
  • Caroline Lane, Sixth Grade
  • Daschle Briggs, Sixth Grade
  • Devin Price, Eighth Grade
  • Dylan Donner, Eighth Grade
  • Jeevan Raghupathy, Sixth Grade
  • Julia Wise, Seventh Grade
  • Julian Vari, Seventh Grade
  • Leo Van Horne, Sixth Grade
  • Lucy Li, Sixth Grade
  • Milo Vidyarthi, Sixth Grade

A big thanks to thanks to Claire Bukata, Associate Director of Middle School and Math Department Co-Chair, for organizing the event. We invite you to try memorizing the digits for yourself - we’ve broken them down in groups of 10.
