Pi Day 

This year we will be celebrating the 32nd annual Pi Day.  Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th each year, due to the approximation of pi being 3.14.  The POMS will celebrate this year by collecting pet items for Happy Valley Animals in Need and nonperishable food items for the Local Food Bank.  We will have an assembly in the gym that includes our band, relay races by the students and teachers, and the pieing of some faculty and administrators.  We will end our celebration by enjoying pie with our advisories thanks to our student council.
