In a video posted to YouTube Friday, Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School Head of School Paul Barton, left, and the Rev. Ned Mulligan, the school’s chaplain, took the ice bucket challenge for ALS after being challenged by administrators from St. Benedict’s Episcopal Day School in Smyrna.

After deciding to increase the challenge a bit, Barton and Mulligan stepped into a 48-degree, athletic chill pool in the school’s Athletic Training Center with separate cups of ice water for the dunk.

Holy Innocents’ students, however, had something else in mind: Connor Barry heaved a bucket of ice over the new head of school while Haven Boaz thoroughly doused Mulligan.

“That was good for the first take,” Barton said good-naturedly. He then challenged the school's previous head of school, Gene Bratek, now headmaster at Davidson Day School in North Carolina.
