OLATHE, Kan. -- Students at Madison Place Elementary in Olathe got a special greeting Thursday morning. The principal welcome them to school from atop the roof.
Dr. Gary Stevenson camped out in a tent overnight on the roof after students reached a fundraising goal. He read bedtime stories to the kids on Facebook live then hunkered down for the night. With no heater in the tent, Stevenson said it was a bit cold, but he had plenty of blankets to keep warm. He says he's proud of the way everybody at school helped make it happen.
"As a principal one of the things I want to see happen to my school is a sense of community, and this is been an opportunity for parents and students and staff to come together work toward a goal and achieve it," Dr. Stevenson said.
Stevenson adds that he's looking forward to sharing donuts with students who raised money. He also said he's looking forward to a warm shower.
