St. Mary Catholic School students have driven their principal up the wall and out onto the roof of their school this morning (March 19).

But it’s all in the name of reading motivation.

St. Mary Catholic School Principal Joyce Price will spend today sitting on the roof of her Fourth Street school wearing her pajamas because of a challenge she gave her students – read 20,000 pages in a week.

Last week, during Book Fair week, the students did that and more, reading 67, 392 pages.

Stay tuned for more. WilmingtonFAVS will be there, camera in hand.
