But his new hairstyle was for a good cause. The students at League Elementary raised a total of $1,619.53 for the Lukemia and Lymphoma Society. This marks the sixth year the school has held the fundraiser during its coins-war week.
“That’s really impressive. You should give yourselves a big hand,” said Robyn Rogers, Title I teacher during a short, all-school assembly Friday afternoon.
If the students raised more than $1,000, the winning home room could pick a student to give Kreischer a mohawk.
Alahna Garza, 10, the daughter of Dezeree, was the lucky girl. She is in the home room of Tiffany West, who teaches social studies and science.
“They beat Mrs. (Lisa) Martin’s class by 30 cents,” Kreischer said. “They also will get a catered Olive Garden lunch.”
Rogers gave Garza some tips as she used an electric razor to shave the principal’s hair. They had to use a second attachment to make it resemble a mohawk.
“They actually brought in $1,000 (Friday). They had (about) $600 before that,” Kreischer said before the assembly.
