MEDINA, Ohio — Brian Condit, the principal at Ella Canavan Elementary in Medina, made good on his promise to his students to sleep in a tent on the roof of the school for a good cause.

Condit made good on his promise: If his students raised $10,000 for the "Laps and Ladders" fundraiser, he would stay the night on the roof.

Well, they surpassed their goal and raised $16,000.

"I brought a chair to sit in and some books to read, so I can promote my love of reading to the kids," he said before reading one of the books to the child from the rooftop.

The school will use the money that was raised to add benches and picnic tables to an outdoor area of the school.
