Happy St. Patrick’s Day Week!!

I hope you were able to find some joy this week.  This is one of my favorite weeks.  It’s my wife, Kathy’s birthday on 3/13, it’s Pi Day on 3/14 and this 100% Irishman named Patrick loves 3/17.

This Largest Leprechaun in the World and former Math teacher believes this is the Best week of the Year.  I am aware of some fun Pi Day celebrations and some fun wearing of the green on St. Pat’s Day.  It is so great to find ways to create fun experiences for our students.  Thank You!!
