Pi day celebrations
Nirjan Gurung and Kristen Womack, fifth graders at Broken Ground School in Concord, display their certificates for winning first and second place in their class Pi Day Challenge. Gurung recited from memory the first 127 digits of the number pi, while Womack recited 68. Pi Day is celebrated on March 14, because the first three digits of pi are 3.14.
Franklin High School teachers Ryanne Dennis and Stephanie Shepard prepare to serve up slices of pies to the 120 students with the highest grade point averages to celebrate Pi Day on March 14. Faculty members donated the pies, and the math department teachers called upon several other faculty members to help deliver the treats during the advisory period.
