Teachers and Principal Chia dressed up as aliens for the day at the conclusion of the school's three-week fundraiser.
Aliens took over Rock Creek Forest Elementary School last Monday, Dec. 19, when Principal David Chia and the school's teachers dressed for the day as intergalactic creatures at the conclusion of the school's three-week fundraiser. As part of the Scholastic Book Fair's "One-for-Books" fundraiser, teachers agreed to dress as either aliens or robots if a sum of $1,000 was raised to provide books for scholarship students and for the school library. (Book donations were also made by Scholastic to three nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping kids and families in need.) Students voted with dollar-bill and loose-change donations to have their teachers dress up as either aliens or robots. The alien category won by a slight margin.
