Although Pi Day is always special in the middle school why is it so special this year you ask? The date is 3/14/15, those are the first five digits in the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter! AND as if that wasn't enough reason to celebrate at 26 minutes and 53 seconds after 9 a.m (and again at 9 p.m), we will pass a date and time represented by the first 10 digits of π. This won't happen again for another 100 years!
