OSHKOSH - The students and staff at Read Elementary School in Oshkosh have been participating in Pennies For Patients -- a fundraising program for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society -- for the past nine years.
This year, the students have raised a whopping $11,000.48! That could be in part to the willingness of their principal and teachers to endure some "unpleasant" situations.
The staff at Read set fundraising goals for their students. At the lowest level, they could slime their guidance counselor. At the next level, they could make their gym teacher kiss a pig. All of those things have happened so far and now it has come down to the final test for the staff.
Since the students were able to raise so much money, Principal Chris Rogers and 8 other staff members agreed they would spend the night on the roof of the school on Thursday, May 24.
FOX 11's Angela Kelly caught up with the group on the roof as they were waking up on Friday morning.
