BENTLEY – Teachers and staff at Bentley Primary School participated in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Friday, Aug. 22.
Five BPS students challenged their teachers to get doused with a bucket of ice water to raise awareness for ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The group of 20 invited the Bentley Fire Department to come and spray them with water instead of using individual buckets.
All the students were out on the playground to watch the event.
They were thrilled to see their teachers and principal getting wet. Screams of “do it again” rang through the group.
Teachers also plan on donating to ALS. BPS teachers and staff then challenged the teachers and staff at Halstead Middle School, Halstead High School and the central office to take the challenge or donate as well.
