Modesto principal feels so pretty – olé!

April 6, 2014 

Buying a lot of books has left Sonoma Elementary School students with a fun story to share. Their principal, Darin Willett, made a deal with the kids before the Scholastic Book Fair, held the first week of March: Surpass the goal of raising $3,600 for the school’s PTA and he’d wear a silly get-up. Well, the school raised $5,170 from the book fair, so all day Friday he delighted students by donning a tutu and – because the fair’s theme was “Fiesta” – a sombrero.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
