After you’ve packed up your Thanksgiving leftovers, it’s time to jump into the Winter Holiday spirit. On 11/26 from 4-7 pm, the Saturday after Thanksgiving Rockland is closing off Union Street for their 22nd annual Holiday Stroll.

This annual town event hosted by the Rockland Friends Committee is a great time for the town to come together and kick off the holiday season. Citizens are able to walk around and socialize go to different shops, enjoy treats, and drink hot cocoa; there’s even events and activity for the kids to do.  Also, the big man himself, Santa Claus makes a star appearance for the children to tell him their wishes and take pictures with.

Jasmin Morse, Veritas Web Editor

On November 13, Rockland seniors and current members of National Honors Society, Mo Youssef, Lulu Lima, Julia DiCenzio, and Noelle Atkins represented RHS in the WGBH Quiz Show. Rockland was one out of 125 Massachusetts schools that competed for 16 spots on Season 8 of High School Quiz Show on Channel 2 WGBH.

The group was accompanied by Mrs. Donovan to Brighton on “Super Sunday.” Once there, the teams had to answer 100 questions in separate rooms in the studio. Although Rockland’s team was not one of the 16 teams that was selected, Mrs. Donovan said it was a lot of fun and they excelled in answering the science and math questions.

RHS principal John Harrison said, ” We were well represented by these outstanding seniors.” He hopes that Rockland will compete again next year.
