Mt. Morris Principal Sleeping on the School's Roof


MT. MORRIS (WIFR) -- An Oregon School District principal is living up to his word and sleeping on his school's roof Thursday night.

Kip Crandall is the principal at David L. Rahn Junior High in Mount Morris. He told the 8th grade class that he would camp out on the school's roof, If they raise enough money for a physics field trip to Six Flags. Well the class did just that, they collected more than $2,700. Crandall says it's great to help motivate students.

"The junior high age it can be a challenge day in and day out but whenever you issue a challenge to them the majority of our kids will respond, whether that be in a testing atmosphere or a fund-raising agreement. it's just nice to see them responding to challenge put before them," Crandall said.

Crandall and the students will leave Friday morning at 8 a.m. for Six Flags.
