The district celebrated Pi Day on March 14 with contests at Bethpage High School and John F. Kennedy Middle School.

Students were tasked with reciting as many correct numbers in a row as possible in the numerical value of Pi. JFK sixth-grader Joey Bashker earned top honors in the district for this year by naming 202 digits. Seventh-grader Arsh Singh finished in second place with 132 digits.

Freshman Gulam Abbas was the individual winner at the high school with 130 digits in a row. In an additional contest, students embraced the challenge of going around in a circle naming one digit at a time. Junior Geanna Koulouris was the final contestant standing to earn a t-shirt along with Gulam.

The district congratulates all of the participating students for helping to celebrate Pi with this fun contest.
