There is nothing like watching one of your favorite teachers get a bucket of ice water dumped on their head.
Multiply that by four, and that’s what the delighted student body at Green Valley Middle School witnessed Friday at lunch – four of their teachers participating in the ALS ice bucket challenge in the quad.
It’s a trend sweeping the nation, burning up social media. Despite the millions of dollars it’s bringing to the ALS Association, it’s causing a wee bit of controversy in drought-stricken California. To date, it has brought in donations of more than $100 million, compared to just $2.8 million in the same time frame last year. The primary “rules” are that if you don’t accept the challenge, you donate $100 to the ALS Association. If you do the challenge, the donation is $10.
