Principal to sleep on school roof overnight after students beat fundraising goal

Twin Peaks Elementary challenged their students to a fundraising “Penny War” where students in each grade collected loose change throughout March to raise funds in partnership with the school PTA for a community event to celebrate the legacy of Twin Peaks Elementary.  

Students were able to crush their fundraising goal of $2,000 and raised over $3,000 for the May 19th Community Celebration which will honor the legacy of Twin Peaks and the impact it has had on the community for over 50 years. As part of the fundraising challenge, principal Rachel Lowry agreed to spend the night on the roof of the school if students reached or exceeded their goal. 

Principal Lowry and other staff members are prepared to brave the elements overnight on the roof of the school Thursday evening into Friday morning. The school will host a community event starting at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2023, where there will be treats and bedtime stories before Principal Lowry ascends a lift to the roof of the school for her night under the stars. Friday morning at 8:30 a.m. students and staff will celebrate the roof-top sleepover as Principal Lowry descends from her lofty slumber.

We invite you to come experience this fun and visual event which helped raise funds to celebrate the legacy of Twin Peaks Elementary.
