Shouting from the rooftop took on a literal meaning Tuesday at Sarasota Christian School.
The private school's Superintendent Jeff Shank climbed atop the school's roof with megaphone in hand and read to his students as part of a "Go Crazy For Reading" campaign at the school.
Students voted for which teacher or administrator would have to do the craziest thing they signed up for. Votes were earned through each book purchased at the school's book fair.
Bible teacher Brad Graber narrowly won the contest and would have had to shave his head if he received the most votes.
Instead, Shank relocated his office to the school's roof where he read stories to classes through a megaphone and surprised students with treats thrown from the roof while students delivered messages and some survival treats to Shank by placing them in a bucket tied to a rope for Shank to retrieve.
School officials say more than 385 books that were purchased at the book fair will generate an average of 46,000 minutes of reading.
