Don’t be alarmed by a tent atop Monterey Middle School tomorrow morning (Nov. 23), it’s just principal Ken Andrews fulfilling a promise to his students.
Andrews told the Monterey Athletic Leadership students if they sold a certain amount of coupon books, he’s sleep on the roof. A grandparent came through coughing up $1,000 to put the students well beyond their expectations.
Athletic leadership students Sela Piercy, Jenna Froese, Sonny Miller and Sebastian Brubaker outfitted Andrews this afternoon and announced the bonus $1,000 would be donated to PAC for ongoing work on the outdoor play space.
“The funds we raised through these coupon book sales will make it possible for us to purchase new sports equipment, equipment for extra curricular athletics, jerseys for our sports teams and earn special events like our fun day that add school spirit,” said Sela.
“Our goal was to sell 415 books. If we did this, Mr. Andrews agreed to sleep on the school roof,” said Sebastian. “Our student body did such a great job that not only will Mr. andrews be sleeping on the roof, but he will be doing so in a onesie.”
