Parks Primary Ice Bucket Challenge
On Monday, September 8, 2014, the principal of Parks Primary School, in Saint Martin Parish accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Students were encouraged to make a minimum donation of a $1 to the ALS foundation. All students who made a donation were allowed to wear their favorite Saints shirt to school for the ice bucket challenge. Ms. Julie Laviolette, Parks Primary's Principal, was doused with icy water in front of the "Who Dat" cheering student body. The Parks Primary School community raised over $800 to donate to the ALS Foundation in honor of former Saints player Steve Gleason. Ms. Laviolette and Parks Primary's students have challenged Parks Middle School, Saint Martinville Primary and Breaux Bridge Primary to also donate to the foundation.
