The Dighton Rehoboth Regional School District is proud to announce that the Dighton-Rehoboth High School Field Hockey team is the October 2022 recipient of the We Are DRiven to Serve award for Community Service. The Dighton Rehoboth Girls’ Field Hockey team, composed of 27 players, is being recognized for the We Are DRiven to Serve award for Community Service because during September (childhood cancer awareness month), the team organized and hosted a bake sale and donated the profits to the Izzy Foundation.Since 2011, this national foundation, based in Providence, has provided support to families dealing with pediatric cancer. Coach Meghan Marcotte said, “We know that many families have children who are battling cancer, and that researchers are still searching for a cure for cancer. In addition, many families utilize the Izzy Room at Hasbro Children’s Hospital while their children are being treated.” “Of the many tragedies in our world today, pediatric cancer is one of the most difficult. The child and their family are robbed of so many special moments. Our Field Hockey team’s commitment to the Izzy Foundation is a way to help comfort those families in true We Are DR fashion,” offered Superintendent Bill Runey. The DRRHS Field Hockey team has a special connection with the Izzy Foundation. Emma Wheeler, a DR alumni, played field hockey and was in treatment at Hasbro Children’s Hospital the same time as Izzy. Each year, the team tries to put together a fundraiser to raise money for childhood cancer research and the Izzy Foundation.

Superintendent Runey and the DRRSD School Committee want to express their pride in and appreciation to Palmer River second grader, Liana Guite, who won $5000 for her school through the Feinstein Foundation Golden Ticket program! In addition, the foundation made a $500 donation in Liana’s name to the charity of her choice, and she chose Palmer River as well. This was a true #WeAreDR moment as she presented the check at the School Committee meeting.
