Students Tape Principal White to the Wall for a Good Cause


As a part of a fundraiser to sponsor a child from the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya, our students held a fundraiser and bought enough pieces of tape to stick Principal Zack White to the wall. Click through the photo gallery above to see how much fun our kids had and watch the video to see a time-lapse of the action below.

More than 400 students participated by buying a piece of tape for $1. The funds raised will go to help sponsor Yar Machar through Seeds of South Sudan. Machar is a 12-year-old girl who currently lives in the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya. For the first time, Machar will live in a boarding school, have three solid meals a day, and experience the joys of education just like students at Skyline Vista!

"I want to say thank you so much for helping her, and we’re going to continue to raise money for her so that she can continue to go to school," said White.

Before White pulled himself off the wall, he kept the momentum going by passing on the tape challenge to Roger Vadeen, principal at Sunset Ridge Elementary. Stay tuned to see if he accepts the challenge!
