Pi is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, and it is also one of the most revered mathematical constants in the world. Pi Day was first officially celebrated on a large scale in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium. Since then, Pi Day has been celebrated by millions of students and math-lovers every March 14th or 3.14. At Ferrahian, we celebrated Pi Day by encouraging Middle School students to participate in a memorization challenge contest, where the students memorized the greatest number of digits for Pi. Students also competed for the best Pi Day posters, the best Pi Rap performances, and finally a Pie Eating Contest. It was a fun an exciting celebration for all students. The first place winner for the memorization contest was Daron Iskendarian, who enumerated 162 number digits, and the second place winner was Emmy Willett with 102 digits memorized. The other participants were: Hrag Kassabian 3rd, Narod Arisian 4th, Eric Yenikomshian 5th, and Sevoulig Bastilian 6th. The Pi Day poster participants were Sarin Menzician with1st place and Anna Arzumanian and Lidia Muradyan who tied for second place. Pi Rap participants who tied for first place were, 8th grade group, Christine Aghjayan, Nyree Der Megerdichian, Sophene Kevorkian and Aleen Kuyumjian and the 7th grade group, Eliz Balouzian, Vartan Martirosyan, Johnny Nikogosian.

Pie Eating Contest winners were Shawn Torossian and Hakop Martirosyan, who tied for first place.
