Teacher Appreciation & Pi Day

Teacher Appreciation & Pi Day

Happy Pi Day!

If you are a math nerd (like me), this is a fun day!

People young and old, all around the world, challenge themselves to memorize π on this day
March 14 or 3.14


Pi, the ratio of the circle’s circumference to its diameter, is an irrational number which never repeats,
so memorizing pi can be a lifelong adventure!

For this Pi Day, we are not baking an apple pie, nor a pizza pie, nor egg pie or quiche!

To celebrate Pi Day 2011 we are going to appreciate our math teachers, or better yet, all our teachers!

Teacher Appreciation Asian Theme

Teacher Appreciation & Pi Day

This year for Teacher & Staff Appreciation Day, our wonderful parents chose a delightful Asian theme, transforming the auditorium into a magical colorful space.

On this day the parents go all-out to express their gratitude for the faculty and staff at our school. While some parents graciously wait on the teachers at the luncheon, other parents are in the classrooms so teachers may have an extended lunch period to relax and enjoy the fabulous meal.

The appetizer buffet included eggrolls and sushi rolls.

Faculty and staff received invitations to the luncheon two weeks prior to the event, which included a set of chopsticks – so we knew the theme was to be Asian, but no one sees the room until they arrive for lunch.

Imagine our delight as we walk into the transformed auditorium! We are fortunate  indeed – to work at an outstanding school with such a dedicated parent population.

Cherry blossoms – an omen of good fortune and an emblem of love and affection.
Koi – a very powerful symbol of good luck, abundance and prosperity.
