(Wrightsville) -- An elementary school principal in York County has promised to spend at least one night on the school's roof after students met their reading goal.
Wrightsville Elementary School Principal Donald Gillett headed to the roof on a ladder last night amid chants of "To the roof!" from students.
That came after he had vowed to spend every night on the roof until the York Revolution baseball team lost a game — provided students read at least 2,000 books before the team's opening day, which is Thursday.
Darrell Henry, a broadcaster for the Revolution, says students read 4,293 books before the deadline. Henry says three girls will throw out the first pitch at the team's home opener tonight against the Bridgeport Bluefish.
