Pi Contest Winner

Our Pi contest was arranged by our substitute teacher, Caprice Rosentreter. The challenge was to memorize as many digits of pi as possible.  On pi day (Mar 14th) students used homeroom time to recite the digits in front of their class. The top student in each homeroom won points for their house – equivalent to the number of digits they were able to recite.  Fox House (green) earned 937 points – and they didn’t even have Justin to help them – he’s in Rowling (orange) - which earned a total of 674.  Gandhi (blue) was in third with 658, and Da Vinci (red) earned only 269 points.  If you look at the totals, you realize what a large contribution Justin made for his house!

 

Red 269

Blue 658

Green 937

Orange 674

 

Elaine presented Justin with a Purdy’s Gift Card and later this year he will be presented with a lapel pin – acknowledging that he is house champion in a Math Contest.

Cranston Middle School Naming Survey

 

The Calgary Board of Education is building a new middle school in Cranston. A School Naming Committee has been convened to recommend a name to the Board of Trustees. From the initial survey that parents and students participated in, the Committee has created a shortlist of names and would like your input. Please complete this survey prior to February 29, 2016. It is important to note that this is not a vote, but rather an opportunity for input.
