Pies and sundaes

Pi Day is a big deal at Crystal Spring Elementary.  It is a tradition for fifth graders to throw pies at the principal for learning 50 or more digits of Pi.  Davis Jamison broke a school record this year by memorizing 373 digits.  Principal Tate is celebrating her 10th year as the recipient.  During that time, she's had more than 300 pies thrown at her--in good fun of course!

It wasn't pie, but sundaes, that were on the menu at Westside Elementary.   As an reward for reading books during Read Across America, students won a chance to turn their favorite teacher into human sundaes.  There was plenty of chocolate syrup and a LOT of cherries on top!

Nearly 50 students participated in the human sundae reading challenge.  One student read more than 4 hours worth of books.  Way to go.  These Westside staff members were certainly troopers!
