Twenty years ago former Head of School, John Rouleau, started a tradition of writing a Valentine poem for the school with a rhyming couplet for each student. After John's retirement, C.J. has continued the tradition with help from Emily Skoler (guidance counselor) and Abbey Baker (English teacher). On Valentine's Day, they perform the poem wearing appropriately silly Valentine garb. This year's poem included rhymes about chess, coding, and baking!

Happy Valentine's Day, Rock Point School!
It’s that time again when we gather near
To express affection for those we hold dear
We pound our hearts; we swear our troth
We serve up lattes full of red, foamy froth
It’s a day when old foes set aside all previous animus
And behave with actions completely magnanimous
Those who love PCs and those who love Macs
Join forces in love to work on their hacks
Even the great rivals Moriarty and Holmes
Can be spotted in yoga class chanting synchronous Oms
So it’s time at Rock Point School to put another cheesy poem in motion
That we may recite to you our Valentine’s day devotion
