 Beaufort Academy’s 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Abby Mitchell, took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.... with a twist for SMA (spinal muscular atrophy) which affects Mrs. Mitchell’s friend, Leo. Mrs. Mitchell challenged each of her 2nd graders to raise money for the opportunity to douse her with water and flour bomb her — and they rose to the challenge! This group raised $350, which will be donated to Leo’s Pride, and Mrs. Mitchell wore 13 buckets of water and a bucket of flour.  Great job 2nd grade, the school is so proud and inspired by you and your teacher.
