{students relish success of sale}


Students at Central Elementary School really cut the mustard.To prove it, they spent Thursday morning giving Principal Jon Hunter the works.Hunter had told the school’s Parent Club he would dress as a hot dog and allow himself to be covered with condiments if students selling cookie dough met their goal of $6,000.That’s a promise he came to regret after the school raised $6,080 for field trips, robotics experiments and an upcoming artist-in-resident program.On Thursday, two “top-dog” fundraising students (Dayton Hoffman-Sanders and Patrick Spence), several teachers’ aides, Office Manager Kathy Bond and Eileen Gibbs’ entire kindergarten class lined up to claim their prize.The gym rang with earsplitting shrieks of glee as the group took turns dousing Hunter with ketchup and mustard, smearing on mayonnaise and flinging huge spoonfuls of relish and sauerkraut.“It’s all about the presentation, I guess,” Hunter sighed, picking bits of pickle and cabbage off the pale pink long johns and cardboard bun that parent Kela Lynn had made for him to wear.“He looks disgusting,” observed first-grader Alexis Bottini, 6.An individual parent donated the condiments after hearing about the challenge, Lynn said. No parent club money was spent on the event.Murmured one teacher, eyeing the aftermath: “I hope they don’t serve hot dogs for lunch.”
