The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Committee is sponsoring its 13th annual Dublin City Schools Dodgeball Championships on April 3 at 7 p.m. at Dublin Scioto.
The members of Supt. Dr. Todd Hoadley’s student advisory committee have chosen this year’s causes that will receive 100% of the tournament proceeds. Dublin PFS
A group of self-motivated Dublin City Schools high school students came together to start this organization dedicated to providing post-secondary opportunities to the children of Dublin first responders. These students, who seek to gain entrepreneurial skills and spread the vision of DublinPFS, are dedicated to creating Dublin Police and Fire Scholarships. You can learn more at this link
.The Ronald McDonald House Charities
The mission of the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is to create, find, and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families. Helping a sick child fight their illness takes a big enough emotional toll on a family. Adding a financial strain can make it all almost too much to bear. RMHC can help address those problems, whether they involve housing that’s near a hospitalized child, the expense of staying together in another city, or even getting basic medical and dental care in a vulnerable community.Australian Wildfire Relief
We have all read about the devastation caused by this winter’s wildfires in Australia, causing destruction nation-wide. At least 28 people have died, more than 2,500 homes have been destroyed, an estimated 1.25-billion animals have been lost, and an area the size of Belgium and Denmark combined has been burned.
A portion of the funds will also benefit the Memorial Scholarship Funds of Lyndsey Rice and Kyle Colello, two Dublin Scioto students who passed away in November of 2009.
“Our annual dodgeball tournament has become a unifying community event, raising more than $161,000 since its inception,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley. “The students on my committee were extremely thoughtful as they discussed this year’s possible beneficiaries, ultimately landing on extremely worthy organizations. We hope our entire community will join us on April 3.”
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. If you have a team you are registering, check out this link
