As some of you may know one of our faculty members Mr. Scanlon has recently been diagnosed with ALS. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. ALS eventually leads to people losing the ability to speak, eat, move and breathe.
As a show of support for Mr. Scanlon, we are holding a fundraiser to help raise funds for ALS research and treatment in Mr. Scanlon’s name. At halftime, during the homecoming game, we will hold a large ice bucket challenge as a show of support for Mr. Scanlon in his fight against this terrible disease. You can donate to a teachers bucket who is participating, all teaches have a goal of raising $ 50 and the teacher with the most money will have the smallest amount of ice water dumped on them and the teacher with the least amount of money will have a giant bucket of ice water. Students can also participate in the ice bucket challenge during halftime by donating $ 5 or more and signing up at lunch or in room C338. We would like a big show of support for Mr. Scanlon by having as many teachers and students participating as possible during the halftime ice bucket challenge.
