Solon Middle School Ice Bucket Challenge
Solon Middle School exceeded its ALS Ice Bucket Challenge goal of besting the $1,000 raised by the Solon High School Band last week. With a minimum donation of $1, SMS students were able to enter a raffle to join the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge by dousing assistant principal Scott Hatteberg.
Student pledges totaled $1,127, plus an additional individual $200 pledge. Then a company match was added to double the students’ efforts and SMS made a final donation of $2,654 to the area ALS association.
Nine students and one staff member were drawn at random during the SMS Back-to-School Dance and all earned the right to dump a bucket of icy water on Mr. Hatteberg.
Click on the following link to watch as students Doug Siegel, Izzy Rothenfeld, Sloan Ulrich, Noah Trask, Miya Malcolm, Kendall Ford, Gina Kong, Demetrious Lockridge and Jonathan Gembarski, along with Ms. Preseren, helped Mr. Hatteberg and SMS meet the Ice Bucket Challenge!Resources: Watch the SMS ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!
