ST. MARYS — Despite a rain delay, local high school students and a handful of adults jumped into a pond to raise money for cancer research.
On Sunday afternoon, 42 students and nine celebrity plungers leaped or ran into what was optimistically estimated to be 65-degree weather, as part of the seventh-annual Memorial High School Relay for Life Polar Plunge.
ST. MARYS — With a local school switching its scheduling system, administrators are taking steps to implement the change for the 2012-13 school year.
St. Marys Memorial High School will be on the trimester system next school year, and school administrators are currently working on the scheduling aspect of the new system.
“We will have five academic periods, which are 63-minutes long,” Memorial High School Principal Dave Lewis said. “We will still have a four-minute passing time.”
