PTO CORNER  

SPECIAL THANK YOU! 
The PTO would like to extend their greatest appreciation to Pierce parents Amy Harwin, Myriam Jacopille and Ethan Treistman who dedicated an enormous amount of their time and talent in a year-long project to modernize the Pierce School Teacher's Lounge. Architect Amy Harwin and Myriam Jacopille of Jacopille Design joined forces to create a space where the teachers can collaborate, build community and just relax in a light-filled and comfortable environment, while Ethan Treistman served as a master carpenter making these ideas a reality. Thank you to also to Principal Kelley who spearheaded the modernization efforts and many other parent volunteers who put in sweat and muscle in building furniture, painting walls, and otherwise cheering for our treasured teachers!

PROBLEM OF THE WEEK 
 
SOLUTION TO PROBLEM OF THE WEEK #4: PIZZA PARTY
You have seven mini pizzas to share equally with three friends.  How much pizza will each person get?
Due to different interpretations of the story, we are accepting 2 correct answers.
1. If you assumed that there were 4 people sharing 7 pizzas, then each person would receive 1 and 3/4 of a pizza.
2. If you thought that only 3 friends were sharing the 7 pizzas, then each person would get 2 and 1/3 pizzas.

SOLUTION TO MATHLETES PROBLEM OF THE WEEK #4: GOODY GOODY GUMDROPS
a) A triangle requires 3 colors. A square requires 2 colors. And a pentagon requires 3 colors.
b) Every two-dimensional shape with an odd number of sides will need 3 colors like the triangle and pentagon, while every two-dimensional shape with an even number of sides will need only 2 colors like the square.
c) The cube requires the fewest colors, as it is made up of two squares - each of which only requires two colors and they can be connected so different colors connect. The triangular pyramid requires the most colors because every corner is connected to every other corner, so it requires 4 colors - a different color for each corner.
