— 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.
