Scholars in Ms. Lewis's 8th Grade Math class at Catalyst Maria celebrated Pi day (3.14) yesterday! The class had a contest of who could memorize the most digits of Pi, and the winner correctly recited the first 31 digits! Scholars were then invited to bring in pies for a celebration- check out the picture of the celebration below!
Under the leadership of Ms. Dore, Ms. Ramirez, Ms. Bies, Ms. Fawaz , Mr. Dunlap, the Senior Leadership Class, an National Honors/Junior National Honors Society at Catalyst Maria, the school raised approximately 400 cases of water for Flint, Michigan!

The National Honor Society and National Junior Honor Society recognize outstanding scholars in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. Striving to achieve academic excellence and to be models of character, scholars in these organizations are exemplars both inside and outside of school communities.
Last academic year, Catalyst Maria began chapters of NHS and NJHS in hopes of providing leadership and service opportunities to a group of often underserved students. There efforts were featured in the National Honors Society Magazine Advise- the article can be accessed here.
Great work by Ms. Fawaz, Ms. Bies, Ms. Lewis and Ms. Johnson and their scholars!
