The auditorium at Majestic Elementary was filled with laughter as teachers and staff made good on their promise to take a pie in the face and participate in a silly relay if students successfully completed 27,000 days of reading. Students watched as teachers squared off against office staff in a cotton ball relay. It’s where they dipped their noses in Vaseline, then got a cotton ball to stick while racing across the gym to deposit the cotton ball in a bowl. After lots of lost cotton balls and silly moments, the office staff won the relay. Four teachers, an aide, and principal Noel Grabl also got pies tossed in their faces. We hope the students keep up the good work reading and enjoying all the rewards it brings. Watch the fun on this Fox 13 News story. ★
