BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Principal Jon Morisseau and the teachers from Mountain Park Elementary School took part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge on Friday, having accepted the challenge issued by Hughes Elementary School Principal Jessica Nardi. 

The inter-school challenge began when Principal Jessica Nardi and the teachers at Hughes School wanted to raise awareness and honor the husband of Ellen Masters-Massa, Tom Masters, who passed away from this disease. 

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge started as a simple way to raise awareness about amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a fatal neurodegenerative disease.

Principal Jon Morisseau accepted the challenge and his teachers chose to donate their "Dress-down on Friday" contributions to ALS research.  

With the students cheering on their favorite teachers, it not only raised awareness for ALS, it brought fun school spirit on a beautiful Friday afternoon.

Morisseau challenged the 250 students that attend Mountain Park to go to the end of their driveway at 5 p.m. with their family and friends and take the ALS ice bucket challenge and chant, "MP Rules: Beat ALS". He plans to decorate the bulletin board with the photos of the students.
