On Tuesday, Sarah Landry, the principal of Augusta's Gilbert School, allowed herself to be duct taped to the wall of the school's gym.

Why?

It was all done as a reward for the students.

Over the course of two weeks, they held a school wide read-a-thon.  Each day, the students noted how many minutes they read.  Friends and family of the students pledged to donate a certain amount per minute read.  Alternatively, they could choose to make a flat donation.

Money raised goes toward fun activities for the students.

Because they reached their goal, the principal agreed to let them duct tape her to a wall.

I wished we did fun stuff like this when I was in school!
