BIDDEFORD — A Biddeford High School math teacher didn’t let Tuesday’s blizzard overshadow a holiday that’s important to him – national Pi Day.

Jon Jacques usually brings a few pies to class to celebrate the faux holiday on March 14 that celebrates the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter: 3.14.

After school was canceled, Jacques had to settle for tweeting about the holiday from Portland Pie Company, a pizza company that offered 10-inch pies for $3.14.

The deal lured hungry customers despite heavy snow.

The teacher tries to bring the “holiday” down to a level that non-math geeks will appreciate. He has released a series of Pi Day parodies of popular songs, including Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive.”
