Students at Greenwich High School celebrated pie day on Thursday with a pie eating contest during lunch in the student center. 

 

The high school's math teachers, who organized the day's activities say its the first time they had an event to celebrate 3.14.

 

"This is the first year we're doing something like this," said math teacher Erik Gundel. "Sharing lunch organized with some real activities other than just memorizing pie. We have a pie throwing contest, a pie eating contest and we're playing some tunes that have pie in it in the background."

 

Staff say the goal is to get students become more interested in the subject. 

 

"They're getting excited about math so they don't take it so seriously and aren't so afraid of it," said math teacher Dan Robinson. "Everybody has some fun little things that are nice and easy to do with some other subjects. Sometimes it's harder with math for people to connect with math."

 

Teachers say it also gave students a well deserved break.

 

"Right now we're in the middle of CAPT testing and all the kids are a little tired out because they're taking tests everyday so we thought it would be something fun."
