Walker Charter Academy Principal to be Duct Taped to Basketball Goal Thursday
Walker Charter Academy’s principal will find himself in a sticky situation this Thursday, April 3, when students duct tape him to the school’s basketball poles. Along with the principal, the school’s physical education teacher will also feel the constraints of duct tape. The fun event is to reward the students for their outstanding efforts in the school’s Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart events. The school raised $13,632.20 for the American Heart Association. Every student that raised $50 will get to wrap the tape.
A representative from the American Heart Association will be at the assembly for the check presentation. Walker Charter Academy has averaged $10,000 for the last ten years for this important fundraiser. The school reached the $100,000 mark last year. In 2011, Walker ranked as one of the top 100 Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart combined fundraising schools in the nation.
