Hardin Primary School first grader Aundreya Bends examines her handiwork last Wednesday afternoon after shoving a pie into the face of physical education teacher Joseph Deigert for the “March Mathness” Pi Day fundraiser. Primary school students purchased pies to shove in teachers’ and staff’s faces for $3.14 – a reference to the mathematical constant used to calculate a circle’s circumference and diameter. The $470 raised was used to help an unidentified member of the staff undergoing medical treatment.
