Taking the Plunge


On Saturday, March 24, several St. Mary Academy - Bay View students plunged into the frigid ocean at Salty Brine Beach to raise money and awareness for Special Olympics Rhode Island. The event was part of the 6th Annual Unified Champion Schools Plunge which is open to middle and high schools throughout the state of Rhode Island. The Bay View Plunge team comprised of senior Anna Beaulieu, juniors Casey David and Isabelle Ae Jee Booth, Hannah Nadeau and sophomore Grace Pelletier, raised $1,335 for the cause. Of the total amount of money raised by Bay View, 50 percent will go towards the school’s unified sports program, and 50 percent will go to Special Olympics Rhode Island.Pictured from left to right, Hannah Nadeau, Casey David and Anna Beaulieu.
