Students at Whittier Elementary School raised nearly $13,000 during their recent Walk-A-Thon.  The money will be used to fund special activities.  As a reward for their stellar efforts, Principal A.J. Hoffman said they could turn him into an ice cream sundae.  Children who raised $100 or more got to choose between using ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, sprinkles or cherries to decorate their leader.  At an October 7 assembly, held out back on the blacktop, Principal Hoffman sat in a kiddie pool and let the children do their thing, which resulted in massive squeals of delight.  After returning home and taking a shower, Hoffman reported that his hair was “surprisingly silky smooth.”
