Staff members at Ripley-Huron Community School rose to the challenge of student Quinn Martyn and his family to participate in the ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) ice bucket challenge, Friday, Sept. 5.

Students learned more about ALS and how difficult it can be for for people who suffer from the disease, to perform ordinary
tasks, such as eating, dressing and speaking.  

The school was able to raise awareness, raise funds (total is not yet available), and have some fun!

Ripley-Huron Community School is also excited to be starting full-day Kindergarten this year and welcomes Early Childhood Educators Michelle Elliott and Gail Colling.

The school also has increased the technology available, including a Smartboard and iPad in every classroom, in addition to the computer lab.

Enrollment is up this year, to 263 students.
