Fine Arts Fest continues at Rockingham Middle

The Festival of Fine Arts continued at Rockingham Middle School Tuesday with a series of performances that aimed to entertain, educate and inspire students and staff alike.

“I believe it is so important to continue this tradition,” explained RMS Principal Dr. Theresa Gardner. “Fine Arts Festival allows our students the opportunity to experience things they may not ever get a chance to experience. I know that I have seen performances, myself, that are new to me. This festival serves to educate, motivate and inspire students to think of their passions and their futures beyond the classroom.

ROCKINGHAM —Walt Disney World is known to many as the most magical place on Earth, and for the members of the Rockingham and Hamlet Middle School Beta Club, the magic was all around.

The National Beta Club exists to encourage character, service, academic achievement, and leadership in elementary and secondary school students. Thousands of people were in attendance to show their support and encouragement as Hamlet Middle School shined with creativity by bringing home a first place finish in tee shirt design. Students of Rockingham Middle, Carter Richardson and Will Thompson both brought home a third place finish for their work in visual arts, as well as speech. Lauren Lutz was prepared to rise to the challenge as the Director of Songfest, a competition in which the club is required to rewrite a song that must be under three minutes, while incorporating the Beta Theme.
