Rocky Point Middle School students and staff got a spirited start to the fall season as they celebrated their Eagle pride with a philanthropic twist.

School colors blanketed the building during events including a pep rally and theatrical skits focused on the themes of the school’s Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports program. The day’s events ended with a “lemon” pie eating relay race that called for teams of teachers representing all grade levels to race across the gymnasium to be the first to consume whipped cream pies. Attendees donated hundreds of dollars during the event to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, an organization that supports childhood cancer research. 

In a fun way to cap off the program, one student from those who donated to the cause was selected at random to pie Interim Principal James Moeller in the face. The lucky winner was sixth-grader Heidi Lanze.
