ALEXANDRIA COOL SCHOOL

The Cool School Plunge is an event designed specifically for students and staff to participate in the Polar Plunge! While receiving a fun and educational experience about Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN), the Cool School Plunge aims to teach youth from a young age about inclusion. Students will participate in the Polar Plunge and also interact firsthand with SOMN athletes and learn more about ways they can get involved with SOMN programs.


This is a fundraising opportunity for every activity at Discovery Middle School. Our Cool School Plunge teams can raise money for Special Olympics MN and our school.
