Pointe Coupee principal gets head shaved to honor student achievement

POINTE COUPEE PARISH, LA (WAFB) - School children collected on promises made at Valverda Elementary School in Pointe Coupee Parish. Valverda has six grades and for every grade which reaches its academic grade-point level, a teacher would kiss a pig. But they couldn't find a pig, so a goat was brought in.

Another prize was Assistant Principal Michael Comeau getting his head shaved due to the Valverda children scoring 25,000 accelerated reading points by May 1.
