Park Vista Elementary School in Opelousas celebrated Pi Day today.

The students who have been very good this year are being rewarded with a special treat – to throw a pie in a teacher’s face.

We’ll have video of this event later today on KATC TV3.

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi Day is an annual opportunity for math enthusiasts to recite the infinite digits of Pi, talk to their friends about math, and to eat Pie, according to the PiDay.org website.
