  • Hat Pass:  Periodically, Table Rock has a Hat Pass day to benefit someone in need within the school.  For example, there was a student who lsot his house due to a fire, so they "passed the hat" to raise money for him.
  • Boo Bash and Bunny Bash:  Both of these events are hosted by the student council and are opportunities for the community to come into the school and retrieve treats from students and teachers.  Table Rock welcomes the opportunities to bring students and their communities together because this helps young adolescents build a strong, supportive environment in which to grow and develop.
