Glacier Edge Elementary School students got more than new books for their fundraising efforts in a recent coin challenge. Students donated $2,919.25 to the PTO-sponsored challenge Jan. 11-22, with nearly $500 of that coming on the last day.
As a reward, students got to duct tape principal Theresa Taylor to the cafeteria wall during lunch Monday, Jan. 25.
The funds will go to the school’s Leveled Library, which “basically touches every kid in the school” through having books for all grade-levels, PTO president Amanda Ross explained.
The PTO originally set a $1,700 goal, but after that was quickly reached, they upped it to $2,500. A magician will also visit the school in February to reward the students.
