According to Student Government Adviser, Kirsten Bartoloni, eight Rockland High School Student Council members braved the elements and plunged into the ocean on February 26th. Students attended the Polar Plunge event at Nantasket beach to raise awareness and raise money for Special Olympic programs. Several area schools took part.

This has been a long standing tradition that is sponsored by the Special Olympics of Massachusetts (SOMA). It was put on hold last year with the pandemic. The RHS kids pictured above were among the hundreds of plungers on Saturday. They collectively raised $440 for the cause!  The Nantasket Plunge raised a total of almost $140,000!

Polar Plunges are held in several locations.

Congratulations to the students in their efforts to support Special Olympics of Massachusetts.
