On Thursday, August 21, new members of the RVCTA participated in a different kind of "icebreaker."
President Viri Pettersen greeted members, who, since Monday, participated in the district's New Teacher Institute with a request - to take a stretch for a moment before lunch and provide support as she fulfilled an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge request from friend and colleague, SRP Ilene Madden.
Pettersen thanked all who have supported the campaign, which, to date, has received donations in excess of $41,000,000 for ALS research.
The video of the dunking is found at http://youtu.be/lg5F6ItnhhE. Thanks to RVCTA HS VP Chris D'Ambrosio for doing the honors, and ensuring that every last drop of ice cold water made it on top of Viri's head!
