Cherry Hill Middle students rewarded with Blue Rocks game
— Students at Cherry Hill Middle School got to spend Wednesday afternoon at the ballpark as a reward for their good
behavior this school year.
The sixth- grade class attended a Wilmington Blue Rocks game in Delaware on Wednesday as a reward for earning 100 “peace day marbles,” said Stacy Rahnama, CHMS assistant principal. To earn a marble, the entire grade must have no office referrals for the day.
The sixth- grade class hit the 100 marble mark in March and is the first class to achieve this goal since Rahnama came to CHMS five years ago, she said.
The students receive rewards for meeting certain milestones, such as watching a movie for 30 marbles and getting ice cream for 45 marbles, Rahnama said. At 100 marbles, the school promised to take students on a field trip.
After the students hit 100 marbles, Rahnama reached out to the Blue Rocks, and general manager Chris Kemple agreed to donate the tickets. The school paid for transportation, Rahnama said.
The students had a great time at the game, and four students were even cho- sen to go down to the field and participate in a relay race, Rahnama said.
