It was all part of activities to celebrate the success of the school’s PTA fundraiser. Several teachers were wrapped in toilet paper to look like cotton swabs, others were covered in silly string, got pies in the face, were doused with buckets of water, and two teachers were duct taped to the wall.

It was an exciting way to end the school year with students cheering Principal Susuico and their teachers on as they all celebrated the hard work of students raising money for PTA.
