Purple Rain

May 30, 2014 

Tracy Sample, left, principal at Lee’s Summit Elementary School, and Sarah Eckert, library media specialist, revealed their purple-dyed hair at an all-school assembly May 27 before spending the night on the school’s roof. Braving isolated rain, Sample and Eckert camped out to reward students at the school for surpassing their Accelerated Reader all-school goal of 10,000 points. Both Sample and Eckert dyed their hair purple in honor of the pledge after students earned more than 18,000 points.
