Kingston Principal Bill Marble accepted Barton Elementary School Principal Sean Sweeney's nomination to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge this week. Mr. Marble encouraged students to bring in spare change as donations for ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) research. Students were promised Mr. Marble would be doused with one bucket of ice water for every $50 raised. By September 12, 2014, Kingston students had raised $450! Nine students each were allowed to dump a bucket of ice water on their principal's head. And, for good measure, Mr. Marble invited the Kingston teachers to dump an extra-large "bonus" 10th bucket of water on him as well.
