Students at Seckman Middle School lined up throughout the lunch hour on Friday for their chance to throw marshmallows at the school's principals and teachers.
The event is called "Pelt the Principal," and it's all part of a three-week fundraising effort to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The students paid a quarter for four marshmallows to pelt at school officials.
"The students are so excited about it," said Madelyn Layman, the Seckman reading teacher who organized the event. "We'll be holding 'Pelt the Principal' the next two Fridays."
As part of the society's school and youth program, students engage in a three-week campaign to learn about blood cancers while collecting coins to help those battling blood cancer. The class collecting the most change in each school receives a pizza party or an Olive Garden lunch.
Last year, the school raised $1,263 for the charity, and it's hoping to raise even more money this year.
