    Students from Peaks Island Elementary School gather at the end of the ferry dock to watch their teachers and other faculty members plunge into Casco Bay -- a second annual September tradition at the K-5 school. Principal Renee Bourgoine-Serio said the event is meant to demonstrate that taking risks and trying new things is easier in a group of trusted friends or colleagues. "Plus, it's ridiculously fun. And we want to model that too." (Photo by Ben McCanna/Staff Photographer)
