This year for MAD Week, Heritage High School added a new fundraiser: the Teacher in a Box. Two teachers and an administrator were “trapped” in a box for an hour and the students could give money to either make them smile or squirm.
The smile category included things like their favorite drink or food, or maybe some tunes they really enjoy. The squirm category, which was where most of the money went to, included their fears or things they didn’t want to do.
“The teachers they used where really
funny and played along really well. I really liked Fischer’s, it was awesome when he had to wax his legs,” says Morgan Castle ’15.
The people who were trapped were Mr. Fischer, Mrs. DeVries and Mrs. Riendeau. All of these teachers were great supporters and ended up raising a lot more money than was expected. Teacher in a Box raised $987.20 in just three off hours.
“I thought it was really funny and it was a fun new way to make money for MAD week,” says Michelle Near ’15.by
