The WSISD Education Foundation raised $8,000 during its 3rd Annual BRRRewer Bear Plunge on Jan. 26.
More than 100 people braved the 34 degree waters of Splash Dayz White Settlement and took to the slides dressed as jellyfish, sharks, super heroes, rock stars and more.
All proceeds from the community event fund programs and student incentives in WSISD schools, and the schools competed to raise the most money.
Blue Haze Elementary won $750 and a trophy for first place.
Brewer Middle School took home a $500 check for second place.
North Elementary received $250 for third place and second place in the costume contest.
The Fine Arts Academy team won first place in the costume contest.
The foundation awards annual grants for Brewer High School's dual credit program, which enables low income students to take dual credit classes and earn college credit.
Other annual grants include the Brewer High School PALs program in which students in PALs serve as mentors as the elementary and intermediate schools, the Bear Tracks Meet and Special Olympics.
