Anyone aged 6 & up can take the plunge! Register to plunge for $20 or get friends to sponsor you. You will receive a commemorative tee-shirt, complimentary snacks AND ULTIMATE BRAGGING RIGHTS!!!

Registration begins at 10 a.m. at the Lake Waramaug State Park Beach. Plunge for ages 11 & up is at 11 and plunge for ages 6-10 is at 11:05.

“We are very much looking forward to another plunge,” said Head of School Pat Werner, who had the idea to hold a plunge. “It keeps getting better each year!”


…you don’t have to attend WMS or be a WMS parent to plunge!

…the Polar Plunge for Partnership raises money directly for the WMS Community Partnership Program (WMSCPP).

…WMSCPP provides the opportunity for two students to join the WMS Middle School from the Children’s Community School (CCS) in Waterbury.

…WMSCCP is meaningful to our community because it welcomes a broader and more diverse range of motivated students.

…the students who come to WMS from CCS have been identified as academic and social leaders.
