fun at the school

Spring splash


On Monday, May 10, the Lake Preston School’s Unified Champions group hosted this “Spring Splash” event in place of participating in the Polar Plunge that didn’t happen this winter due to COVID concerns. The local participants were Shane Waikel, Kenny Bongers, Heidi Woodard, Kirsten Long, Jan Hillestad, Garrett Kruger, Alex Post, Austin Conrad, Lucas Unruh and Patrick Poppen along with bucket dumpers, Noah Thomas and Mariah Nelson. Collectively, with donations from friends, family, school kids/staff and community, the group raised around $700 in support of Special Olympics. Ice added to some of the buckets made it a cool surprise for some, but it was worth it to support such a great cause. Although COVID cancelled fall bowling and winter basketball for the athletes, some of the kids will be participating in spring track and field at the area meet in Hayti on Fri, May 21.
