Dodgeball on March 27 benefits great local causes, summer job fair for students unique to Dublin
The Dublin City Schools dodgeball tournament has become a community tradition that successfully brings our entire District together to give back by raising funds for local worthy causes.
That tradition continues on March 27 with the eighth annual Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championships at 7 p.m., at Dublin Scioto. The event is planned and run by the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee, consisting of student representatives from each of our three high schools.
This year, the event will benefit Dublin Special Olympics and Parents Encouraging Responsible Choices (PERC).
The mission of Dublin Special Olympics is to offer year-round high quality sports training and competitions for athletes in our district who have developmental disabilities. This program is relatively new to our District and is completely dependent on donors for funding. Led by staff member Krista Keir, Dublin Special Olympics offers students with special needs the opportunity to participate in sports such as basketball, track and field, bowling, swimming, gymnastics, and more.
PERC is a committee of District parents and educators whose mission is to empower parents to encourage informed and responsible choices for and by the youth in our community.
PERC has been in existence for several years and has developed a reputation in the community for providing forums to discuss the issues facing today’s young people. The group has brought in nationally known speakers such as Dr. Michele Borba to speak about child development. The group has also effectively leveraged the many local resources in our community to provide parents with information about topics such as underage alcohol consumption and drug use, internet safety, safe dating, bullying and many more.
A portion of the funds will also benefit the Memorial Scholarship Funds of Lyndsey Rice and Kyle Colello, Scioto students who died tragically in November of 2009.
To date, the tournament has raised more than $80,000 for worthy causes.
The entrance fee is $25 per team, but the Central Office/Board of Education team will be donating more to this year’s causes. The Central Office/Board team challenges all adult staff teams to also donate beyond the $25 entrance fee.
Teams consist of 6-10 players, with six players on the court at one time.
The tournament will be a single elimination competition and consist of five divisions. These divisions are elementary (4th/5th graders), middle school, high school girls, high school boys, and adults.
The winning teams will be awarded the Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championship trophy that currently resides at the schools of last year’s champions.
Admission to the tournament is $5.This year’s tournament will also feature a 50/50 raffle to benefit the Dublin Education Foundation (DEF). The DEF provides grants to our teachers for special classroom projects.
Please consider joining us for this unique to Dublin event that exemplifies the Dublin Difference and our community’s commitment to giving back.
The next morning, March 28, from 9 a.m.-noon our summer job fair for students will take place at Jerome. The event is free and open to any student of working age.
