Timberlane celebrates pi with pie

Timberlane students enjoy math fundraiser


“Everyone can’t believe how much pie we have,” he said. “Their eyes light up.”

Mascioli said the fundraiser started in 2000, after math teacher Dan Ketcham died with cancer. The scholarship is named after Ketcham.

“He embodied a very giving attitude,” she said. “I feel like he’s smiling down on us that we keep going.”

But Mascioli said the passion of the students was what made it special. Students set up the classroom after school Wednesday, decking the walls with the pi symbol and putting pi facts and riddles throughout the classroom.

For senior Emily Swanson, it was just another activity which shows the spirit of Timberlane students.

“It’s nice to help out and it kind of brings us all together as a society,” she said. “Everyone wears their math T-shirts and it’s just a fun day.”
