Northport High School’s Class of 2019, and their advisors Larry Cerasi and Wayne Jensen, recently raised approximately $350 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation through their unique fundraiser, “Tape Your Principal to the Wall.” Students were asked to donate money towards the cause and in return, they received a piece of duct tape. One by one, participants stuck Principal Dan Danbusky to a wall in the school building. This was the first year of the fundraiser and the turnout was a successful one. “This was very much a student-initiated event” said Mr. Jensen. “The students are eager to expand on the “Tape the Principal to the Wall” fundraiser in the future to maximize participation.”
The Class of 2019 thanked Principal Danbusky for being such an enthusiastic supporter and participant.
