Students at Cedar Wood Elementary celebrated their fundraiser by dumping buckets of ice water on educators.

BOTHELL — Students and staff of Cedar Wood Elementary School celebrated their successful participation in the American Heart Association’s Kids Heart Challenge by gathering in the school’s courtyard and dumping buckets of ice water on five willing educators Thursday afternoon in Bothell.

Students raised over $20,000 for the AHA during the months of February and March and took on a number of physical challenges to live healthier during that same time.

Cedar Wood teachers Ailady Avila, Katelyn Pancake-Boal and John Pappas, alongside principal Bruce Rhodes and Everett Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ian B. Saltzman, braved the ice cold water one by one to reward their students for their fundraising efforts.
