After deciding to increase the challenge a bit, Barton and Mulligan stepped into a 48-degree, athletic chill pool in the school’s Athletic Training Center with separate cups of ice water for the dunk.
Holy Innocents’ students, however, had something else in mind: Connor Barry heaved a bucket of ice over the new head of school while Haven Boaz thoroughly doused Mulligan.
“That was good for the first take,” Barton said good-naturedly. He then challenged the school's previous head of school, Gene Bratek, now headmaster at Davidson Day School in North Carolina.
