Stuco hosts 3rd annual pool party

August 18, 2018

The new school year began with a back-to-school pool party hosted by Student Council. Over 70 students in grades 7-12 took advantage of the free swimming on a perfect evening.

Winning the competitions for biggest splash and best trick was Dustin Nichols.  Gabbie Vontz won the smallest splash contest, and Alex Hayward had the best belly flop.  Alex and Dustin also won the partner ball toss.

A new twist to the annual swimming party was a dunk tank, which was Stuco secretary Erin May's idea. She contacted the Jennings' Fire Department, who lent their dunk tank free of charge, and with the help of her dad, they got the tank to the Oberlin city park. 

Erin also asked several teachers to participate, and they willingly agreed to be dunked - including Principal Ben Jimenez, band teacher Devin Carey, English teachers Ladd Wendelin and Janell Marchello, math teachers Wendy Scott and Tim Breth, Spanish teacher Carol Brown, chemistry teacher Mark Bricker, and PE teacher/activities director Brandon Gehring. 

Students paid $2 for three chances to throw baseballs at the target and dunk a teacher, or they could pay $5 to push the target, which dunked the teacher automatically. Stuco raised over $125 with the dunk tank.

Mr. Jimenez - dressed in shirt, tie, slacks, and shoes - and Mr. Gehring were dunked the most.

"I can't thank Mr. Jimenez and the teachers enough for being such great sports and being a part of our back-to-school party," said Brenda Breth, Stuco sponsor.  "Stuco would also like to thank Roger and Erin May for getting the dunk tank, all the guys who helped lift and carry the tank, Joni Diederich and the lifeguards, and all the students who came to swim. It was a fun evening and a great way to kick off the year."
