Northside Elementary students tape principal to the wall after reaching reading goal

Northside Elementary Principal JoAn Cook was duct taped to a wall at school on Tuesday, May 14. Students taped Cook to the wall after reaching the school-wide goal of 10,000 Accelerated Reader points.

After losing a bet to her students, Northside Elementary Principal JoAn Cook paid up.

Northside Elementary students had an opportunity to tape Cook to a wall at school for reaching the school-wide reading goal for this year.

Students were challenged at the beginning of the school year to reach a total of 10,000 Accelerated Reader points, and if they did, Cook agreed to be taped to the wall.

The students rose to the challenge, and on Tuesday, May 14, they got to cash in.

Every student participated in the duct taping of Cook, whose feet did not touch the ground once they finished. Strips of multi-colored tape glued Cook to the wall, leaving just her face and feet exposed. 

It was certainly a sticky situation.
