Friday, March 1, 2013
It happens every once in a while, usually on a Friday and regulars know to just get out of the way and step around the backpacks.
Friday, just before noon, a strange phenomenon hit the Wawa at the corner of Darby and Eagle roads in Havertown. It happens a few times a year, usually on a Friday. Dozens and dozens of middle school students flood the Wawa. As they rush in, they drop their backpacks on the floor by the front door. They are motivated by an unyielding hunger, satisfied mostly by milkshakes, hot dogs and the occasional soft pretzel. Like a swarming herd they come, celebrating their early release from Haverford Middle School, just down the street. They mean no harm. In fact they're welcomed and good for business. A swarm of young teens and a few tweens who, like moths to a flame, are instinctively drawn to the milkshake machine. Within a few minutes, the …

Haverford Middle School teachers perform a dance at the 2013 Potter Cup.
The rivalry between Haverford Middle School and Paxon Hollow Middle School in the annual Potter Cup is unmistaken but there may be an unsaid rivalry between the teachers as well. Each year, the middle school teachers perform a dance in the pep rally benefitting Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. And, each year, the dances are different and more intricate for both schools. Watch the video above to see this year's dance performed by Haverford Middle School teachers to a mash-up of currently popular songs. This year's Potter Cup, between the two schools, raised $40,000 to help benefit childhood cancer awareness.
The middle school students spent Monday painting a mural at an elementary school in Philadelphia.

The 10th annual Potter Cup raised $40,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand.
In 10 years, an impassioned rivalry between Paxon Hollow Middle School and Haverford Middle School has raised nearly $300,000 to fight childhood cancer. Gillian Kocher, spokesperson for Alex's Lemonade Stand, said the Potter Cup raised over $40,000 this year. The competition is a best two-out-of-three for girls' basketball, boys' basketball and wrestling. Haverford swept all three competitions. Alex's parents, Liz and Jay Scott, appeared at the Potter Cup's pep rally—on Jan. 18, what would have been Alex's 17th birthday—to give students words of thanks and encouragement. The couple recalled Alex reaching her benchmark goals with her front-yard lemonade stand. They, at first, thought she wanted to experiment with a lemonade stand for fun …
