Mt. View Elementary Principal Andrew Doster made a splash with students on the last day of classes, Friday, June 14.

The principal braved the dunk tank as students, armed with dollar bills and baseballs, took turns trying to sink him in the murky water.

Fifth grader Nathan Rossey took the first shots, sinking Doster on his second throw.

For one dollar, a student was given two shots at the dunk tank target.

The event was used as a fundraiser for the Positive Behavior Intervention & Support (PBIS) program.
Maureen Beamish said the PBIS program reinforces and rewards the students’ positive behavior.

Each month a “blow-out celebration” is held for students who have not had serious infractions, Beamish said in the past year, a disc jockey was brought in on two occasions for the kids.

Funds raised at the “Doster Dunk” will be used to fund the PBIS monthly celebrations.
