Elementary principal camps out on school rooftop after making bet with students

NEW BERLIN, Wis. (CBS 58) – A New Berlin principal is holding up his end of a bargain and sleeping outside. 

Brady Reinke made a bet with his students earlier this year that if they could raise $25,000 for the Ronald Reagan Home and School Association, he would spend the night on the school's roof. 

“It’s not just about kids and their learning that's a huge part of what we do but it's about making memories for them as well if they can look back 2030 years from now and say we went to school every day and we learned a lot but we had a lot of fun too that's what we're trying to do here and if I can be a small part of that for each of our kids I'm happy to do it,” said Principal Reinke.

Reinke spent the entire night on the roof, documenting the stay on Twitter.
