Tomorrow, 3.14, i.e., March 14 (3/14) is World ∏ Day.

Many school districts exploit it as a good excuse to revel in the sheer sensual pleasure of mathematics.

I was delighted to see that Barnstead is doing so. Kudos, Barnstead.

Not so Alton. I had at least hoped that Alton might make it Pie Day. Not even that. We checked, printed timetable and online. No mention.

But, then again, Alton probably doesn’t have to celebrate math.

I went and just checked to make sure. Alton’s much vaunted Prospect Mountain High School (PMHS). 44% of Juniors proficient in Math in the NECAP testing! Is that good? They probably should be treated to pies. Lots of them.

    Pope Francis
    what a great choice. He is a humble priest with 21st century management skills. Zero scandals and rides the bus everyday. Francis of Assisi said “let me rebuild this church”. Catholisism is so lucky to have him. What a choice. Bravo.

      Happy with choice. Will be much better than B16 — but that wasn’t a high bar to clear. He was my #10 pick — out of 10. So I did get him in the book. So I am still good. Crazy here. I am live blogging, on another tab, for Canada’s “Global News”. Thanks.
