For the past 10 years, Rockland School students have attempted to capture a leprechaun on St Patrick's day. With the help of their parents and teachers, the students devise and build their own traps in the hopes of winning the pot of gold.
Understanding that leprechauns are mischievous, and never do what they are told, the students bait the traps with candy, gold coins, and signs proclaiming "No Gold Here!" and "Leprechauns Not Allowed."
Apart from the obvious financial gain, the students also learn about folklore, tradition, and geography.
To this day, there has never been a successful capture. Last years attempt came close, but the leprechaun escaped when the students weren't looking. Judging by the traps, it may just happen this year.
