For Chris Cook, principal at , going upstairs to bed Thursday evening means taking the stairs to the school's roof and his snug sleeping bag.
Cook agreed to spend the night on the roof if the school's students raised $10,000 for playground equipment.
“Tonight I just happened to pick the coldest night possible," Cook said Thursday.
Cook will sleep in a tent on the roof with his sleeping bag, blankets and a lot of school support to keep him warm.
“They’re very excited. Some of the classes have written me bedtime stories," Cook said of the students.
In his robe and pajamas, Cook plans to wave farewell to the students as they head to the buses and greet them in the morning when they return.
“I think it helped them to set a goal, and the community has really embraced the idea that the kids need some more modern playground equipment," Cook said.
In the morning, more fun is in store for the students who raised the most money. These students will get to celebrate by smashing a pie in a teacher's face.
