HOBART | This March 14 was National Pi Day. Two Joan Martin classes along with Barbara from Mariyln's Bakery celebrated this special day! It was very exciting for everyone, especially Mrs. Steege's fifth grade class and Mrs. Patterson's second grade class.

Marilyn's Bakery donated pie's just for us! What we did is, we cut the pie's according to how many kids wanted what type of pie. We made many circle graphs and we did really cool math activities. Pi day is celebrated because of a very important letter in the greek alphabet. It means 3.14 ext numbers.

But what is really cool is that if you turn 3.14 backwards it spells, PIE! In Mrs. Patterson's class they learned all about fractions. They made cool creations by using different colored pieces of paper. We wanted to see how some of the kids felt on Pi day we asked Drew and Ayanna how they felt, Drew said.

"I felt quite confused when we started Pi Day but I was happy when she explained that we were going to have pie after math," Ayanna said. "When my teacher said it was Pi Day, I was so excited! She was also happy to have the pie."
