After raising over $14,000 to benefit Spencer Elementary School, the school’s students earned the right to slime their new principal, Bill Renner.
And slime him they did!
The money was raised in the week leading up to the Oct. 13, 2017, Roadrunner Run.
Students were encouraged to donate at least $25 each by asking family, friends and neighbors for donations.
Each step along the way, by raising various amounts ($1,000, $5,000, etc.) students earned prizes, like Pajama Day, Extra Recess Day, etc. If and when students reached the $10,000 level would they get the ultimate prize: the sliming of the principal.
So enthused were the Spencer students that they exceeded the $10,000 fundraising goal to raise a whopping $14,619.
And so, on Friday, Dec. 1, Principal Renner received his sliming from Mrs. Morrow’s kindergarten class, which had raised the most money.
