Riversprings Middle School held two “School Pride Tie-Dye” days on Friday, September 14 and Friday, October 5, 2012.The event was the brain child of RMS Principal Dod Walker. Walker stated that he wanted, “students to be able to express individuality and uniqueness, while understanding the value of being part of a group.” School t-shirts were made available for the students, faculty, and staff. Participants met in the Riversprings courtyard to tie-dye their shirts. The result was a shirt that had a unique “fingerprint,” but also possessed similarity to each other. (Pictured at right: RMS Resource Officer Sgt. Ray Johnson shows off his tie-dye shirt with RMS student Devonta Holton.)
The coordinator for the event was 6th grade teacher Louis Hernandez. Students had the opportunity to “show school pride through scientific inquiry,” according to Hernandez. Hernandez’ ground troops were Mrs. Mina Sutton, Mrs. Amber Allen, and Mr. Steve Walker. Judging from the number of tie-dyed shirts on campus, the event was an enormous success.
So whenever you see a Wakulla County student out and about wearing a RMS tie-dyed shirt, you will know that they are expressing their BEAR PRIDE!
