Teacher dress up auction supports junior class
About 16 teachers at Rhinelander High School were auctioned off recently to help raise money for the junior class and celebrate Halloween.
The teachers each agreed to let students bid on choosing their costume for Halloween and would wear it all day as they taught class Thursday.
“This was a great fund raiser and everyone had a lot of fun with it,” junior student council member and event organizer Janice Luu said. “To have so many teachers agree to be apart of this event was amazing.”
This was the first fund raiser for the junior class and Luu said the proceeds will go toward paying for a senior class trip next year.
And the campaign to pay for that trip got off to a big start with the dress up contest as the group raised about $175.
“We had about 50 bids,” Luu said.
Luu and the student council put up posters in the cafeteria and students could bid on which teacher they wanted to dress up.
“Thursday, all the teachers that were bought and paid for were dressed up by the winning bidders,” Luu said.
The top bid went for Mr. Doug Nelson at $50 from students Vince Berry, Luke Roberts and Adam Woebbeking. The trio dressed their teacher as a female police officer.
While Luu ran the event, she was able to get in on the action as she won the right to dress up Mr. Matthew Knott. Luu choose a large onesy, a diaper and pacifier for her home room teacher.
Luu said the event was a success and has the junior student council excited.
“It was a great event,” she said. “We are looking forward to doing more fund raisers in the future.”
