A local principal challenged her students to raise money for a school in Kenya that doesn't have a roof.

If they raised $2,000, she pledged to spend an entire day working on her school's roof.

The kids did it, so Laurie Ernstrom turned the roof of Pleasant Valley Elementary School in Gresham into her office for the day.

She greeted students from above as they got off the bus Thursday. She had a desk, laptop and even a bullhorn up there.

She made announcements and played music during recess, as well.
