As in past years, students participated in a pi-memorization contest on Pi Day (March 14, i.e. 3/14) and enjoyed pies and other treats.

Students also could pay for the opportunity to pie each other in the face. The money raised will benefit Plymouth Food Pantry and Project Angel Hugs.

Teachers Charles Salibi, Mary Strong and Megan Hummitzsch were pied in the face during a school assembly March 15.

Cool Whip was donated by Wal- Mart and Piggly Wiggly. Student prizes were donated by: Dominos Pizza, Pizza Hut, Family Video, Cousins Subs, Subway, McDonalds, Culvers, Dairy Queen and the PHS Black Cat Coffeehouse.

During the pi recitation, students wrote down as many digits of pi as they could remember. Most students memorize 10 to 40 digits of pi, which goes on infinitely without repeating.

This year’s winner was Branden Steiner with 1,000 digits, who broke the record of 800 he set last year. Previous record-holders were Jack Heginbottom at 608 set in 2011 and Jeff Roth at 420 set in 2010. Branden’s name will be added (again) to a plaque.

The top five:

Branden Steiner, 1,000 digits, a school record

Sally Paese, 340 digits, a record for girls

Meredith Grimes, 180 digits

Samuel Staehling, 168 digits

Ben Pierce, 160 digits
