NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— Despite being delayed after a couple of snow days, North Salem High School students celebrated Pi Day on March 16 with pencils and pies galore.

“There were 12 pies entered into our annual contest and two students – Sara MacLeod and Nancy Wiegelman – emerged as the winners,” said math teacher Anne Bratt.

The day also included a contest that challenged students to guess the number of jelly beans in a jar, with Aaron Brethower winning with a guess of 674 jelly beans.
