Celebrating Pi Day
Every year, March 14 is considered Pi Day across the country. It is a day recognizing the mathematical number 3.14. While some people celebrate the day by raising awareness about careers in STEM for women, others choose to commemorate it by eating actual pie.
Mrs. Ferris' class decided to do both!
Students learned that Pi is a ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter. They learned that Albert Einstein and Stephen Curry have birthdays on Pi Day. They did some jokes about pie, then experimented with fractions, making maple whip cream and eating pie. The chocolate cream pies used 10/12 or 5/6 of a dozen egg yolks. We also talked about how to separate the egg from its yoke.

Welcome to Brookfield Elementary, where our priority is to create a rich and engaging learning environment, where students are authentic contributors and partners in a positive, fun, and rigorous school climate.
Our support for students goes beyond the walls of our elementary schools and extends out to our sister schools within the Orange Southwest School District, including Randolph Elementary School, Braintree Elementary School, Randolph Union High School and Randolph Technical Career Center. We work together at the administrative level to ensure the success of our students through shared professional development, curriculum, coaching, and learning resources. Whether our schools are large or small, we are committed to common values, high quality learning goals, and professional behavior. This partnership allows each of our schools to thrive, and maintain unique traditions and community connections, while at the same time benefit from increased collaboration and reduced financial costs. It is a win-win for each school!
Brookfield Elementary School is a “PBIS” schools committed to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. To that end, we believe that learning is not just limited to academics. We create a safe and supportive school where students also learn how to be learners; how to be members of a caring community; and how to resolve challenges with peers through positive and appropriate strategies. We directly teach behavior expectations, model what those expectations look like, and provide opportunities for practice across the entire school setting (classroom, hallways, cafeteria, playground, etc.). When students make behavior errors, we treat those as we would treat academic errors. We seek to understand why the student made the error, then reteach, support, and encourage until the appropriate behavior is mastered.
Our school is a community of happy learners, from kids to adults. We invite you to visit, get to know us, and join the fun! We suggest that you bookmark this page for quick reference. If you do not find what you need, please give us a call and we are happy to help. Further, our school Facebook page is another place for updated information, photos, and announcements. “Like” us and you will always be immediately notified with current announcements!
