My kids' high school celebrates Pi Day the Friday before spring break every year. The math students run it in the math wing with cupcakes, pies, a pi-day hat contest, T-shirt contest, etc. It is a much anticipated school event. There is a prize for the student who has memorized the most digits of pi.

Pi Day Celebrations

You can always do a Pi Day run of 3.14 miles or 3.14 kilometers. Wear a t-shirt with a pi on it. Decorate cupcakes with the Greek letter. Make a pie and calculate its circumference and area.
