On Sunday, Oct. 28 from 1-4 p.m. families from Rockland and surrounding towns filed into the Rockland High School lobby to partake in annual RHS Halloween tradition, Project Pumpkin. Here, families paid $3 per child, or $2 if a canned good was donated, in order to trick or treat through the RHS halls, Also available was a venture down the Haunted Hallway, and enjoyable games in the gym.

Running the event was the Student Government Council’s Student Services committee. In charge of the committee is senior Sarah Pollard, a Halloween fanatic, who called the event’s success a team effort stating, “The event went smoothly. There was a great turn-out and I’m thankful for all who volunteered and the families that came.”

On top of the fun and candy, both the SGC and the students involved in the 2019 Guatemala trip held their own bake sales with home baked goods ranging from chocolate chip cookies, whoopie pies, and rolo pretzels.

All in all, both the students and families had a day filled with frightening fun that served to connect Rockland High School to the community.
