Our principal is a HUGE MIZZOU fan, Every Thursday the box tops from each classroom are counted. The class with the most box tops provided him with a team jersey/T-shirt he would wear on Friday. He has worn his rival KU along with Georgia Bulldogs, KC Chiefs, Northwest Cheerleader outfit and of course his favored MIZZOU. It has been a lot of fun. Not to mention all the money from Box Top Collections. We did a Box Top contest with our principal this year.

A note is sent home so parents know to send money with kids (if a school hours event), students can buy a piece of duct tape for a buck. They tape the principal to the wall (must avoid private areas and head, of course)! Principal would hold arms out, legs with feet apart, etc. We did not do this yet, just heard about it.

If kids meet/exceed goal for minutes read, then the "torture" ensues (mostly minor tho) "kiss a squid", "kiss a goat", silly string or whipped cream pie the principal.
