Photo Gallery: St. Sebastian School principal faces paint-covered sponges

Sunday, June 9, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

St. Sebastian School Principal Kathleen Roppa agreed to allow students to throw paint-covered sponges at her if the student body met a reading goal in February.

For each 100 minutes of reading, a link was added to a paper chain. The students at the school in Ross Township had a month to make the chain go all the way through the building on both floors, the requirement to win the prize. The students read for 317,611 minutes.

On May 14, the principal held up her part of the bargain. She donned protective gear and allowed the paint sponges to fly.
