The Rock Moves – October 4th, 2018 – Every student and staff member at RCHS participated in a school-wide initiative to promote health and physical activity on Thursday, October 4th, 2018. The 3rd annual Rock Moves event included a 1.5-mile run and 21 stations from which students could choose. The event was a joint effort, planned by Assistant Principal, Mrs. Becky Smith and PE/Health Instructor, Mrs. Vanessa Howard. It was facilitated by the PE and Health Dept. at RCHS (McQueary, Rupard, and Howard) and every staff member at the high school, with the help of Berea fitness instructors- Lisa Sentar (Yoga), and Eden Lewis (Pound). We are grateful for the support of Rockcastle Regional, King Bottling Company, Rockcastle County Schools Food Services, the phenomenal staff and administration at RCHS, and the help of RCHS JROTC students and staff! This was truly a joint effort that so many played a pivotal role in making possible.
Activities for The Rock Moves included: Bubble Soccer, Pound, Frisbee Golf, GaGa Ball, Capture the Flag, Ultimate Frisbee, Sideline Soccer, the Raider Obstacle Course, Yoga, Karate, Walking, Cornhole, and many more. Research shows that healthy, active kids are better learners and that is the culture we want to support at RCHS. The proceeds of the event will go towards purchasing materials to help keep students active!
As part of The Rock Moves event, over 85 RCHS students and staff participated in a 1.5-mile run during first period. We want to thank Rockcastle Regional Hospital for their generous donation that purchased t-shirts and medals, and for the hospital workers who made the race possible. We’d also like to thank King Bottling Company and Rockcastle County Schools Food Services for providing water/snack for the race 1st period and for the walk 5th period. Also, a big thank you to Sergeant Graves, Lieutenant Colonel Sundys, and the JROTC for helping facilitate the race by directing runners. And of course we want to thank the RCHS administration for allowing us to do such an awesome event!
