STA Celebrates "Ultimate Pi Day"

For years, STA Math teacher Mrs. Virginia Campo has been celebrating "Pi Day" on March 14th in honor of the mathematical figure "Pi". This year is being hailed as the once-in-a-lifetime "Ultimate Pi Day" as it is 3.14.15, especially at 9:26:53 a.m.  

By definition, pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Most of us know it as 3.14.  Some may know it as 3.14159.  Very few can go as far as 3.14159265358979323846.  Pi is actually an infinite decimal and can go on forever!

The Student Council sold shirts in honor of "Ultimate Pi Day" and the proceeds have been used to establish a Math scholarship at STA.  

Alumnus Blaise Heider '07 is currently a doctorate student at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and also teaches Math classes there.  He sold twenty-two shirts to the ULL Math department and was happy to greet his former teacher, Mrs. Campo.

A few of the Pi students and teachers posed for a quick photo between classes!  Pictured are (l-r) Dominic Giavotella, William Daley, Rene Mendez, Brett Bass, Jaylen Jackson, Madeline Lanier, Jacob Deliberto, Mrs. Fidy Valdes, Ms. Michelle Chauvin, Christopher Threeton, Lochlann Werling, Alison Garaudy, Madelyne Miley, Chris Freese, Dominque Derveloy, Mrs. Alex Burris, Ms. Alicia Oalmann, and Chloe Chauvin.
