Letter from Jerry
Today’s Ice Cream Social has become a welcomed tradition that provides us all with a treat and time to share a few moments together over a delicious warm weather respite. Six of us today, however, took on a far less traditional method to beat back the warm weather with a much more effective and meaningful one: theALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
Having been challenged by Peggy Wilson, Andy Zimmer and I stepped up to support ALS and take the well known dowsing of ice water. Far be it from us to stop the chain there, so Tim Wilson and Bill Schrock were challenged right out there on the playground. Did they accept the challenge?
We all hope to see you at the Back-to-School Picnic tomorrow and our first ESPO/Head of School meeting Wednesday morning. A big thank you to ESPO for hosting the picnic!
