It's That Relay Time of Year

Students at The Hill School recent held their own Relay for Life.

It was organized by students Emily Sitko, Class of 2013, from Pottstown and Megan Ruane, Class of 2013, from Schwenksville, shown at right.

The event raised $1,085.00 by selling luminaries (in honor of loved ones affected by cancer), wristbands, tank tops, and raffle tickets.

Meanwhile, over at Rupert Elementary School, principal Matt Moyer may find himself in a sticky situation.

Last year, his school raised more than $1,200 for the Pottstown Relay for Life.

This year, if that total is beaten, the students will get to duct tape him to the wall of the cafeteria.

They've been collecting spare change since April 22 at Rupert and will continue to do so until May 24.

In addition to the taping or their principal, the classroom that raises the most money gets a pizza party.
Raising money for cancer research is certainly a worthwhile goal, but duct taping Mr. Moyer to the cafeteria wall, if that's not motivation, I don't know what is.

I think I'll head over to Rupert right now.....

In the meantime, everyone is gearing up for the main event on June 1.
