Multiplying Success on Pi Day

North Salem Middle/High School students enjoy getting creative on what may just be the most mathematically important day of the year – Pi Day. This year on March 14, which is celebrated for its connection to the first three digits of Pi (3.14), the Math Honor Society swapped tasty treats for nonperishable food donations for a good cause.

In exchange for two items like brown rice, healthy cereals, natural peanut butter, baby food and whole grain pasta, students and faculty were treated to a slice of delicious pie. This special celebration led to the collection of more than 400 food items, which the Math Honor Society will donate to the Mobile Food Pantry of Northern Westchester and Hillside Food Outreach, both of which serve families in Westchester County.

“There is tremendous effort from each of our MHS officers to make this happen,” said math teacher and MHS adviser Anne Bratt.
