Do You Know What Day It Was Yesterday?
So, yesterday, the 14th of March. Write it like I do on my checks: 03.14 Recognize it?
How long have you been out of high school?
That's right. It was Pi Day. Which they celebrate at the Pony's school. Everyone eats pie, of course, write poems to pi, make up songs to pi, wear pi themed clothing, memorize many many digits of pi.
This year, it was covered in the local paper. The whole story can be found here, for at least a little while.
This is why I love this school. Education is taken seriously, but also as an opportunity for fun. The teachers model such a generous and curious spirit, and they draw so much out of the kids. This is a school where it is cool to be smart--and it might even get your name in the paper.
