High CATS scores bring cheers and shears to Potter Gray Elementary School.
Four years ago, Principal Jim Tinius promised teachers and students he would shave his head when the school scored 102 on the CATS assessment.
Well, this year they not only met that goal but scored a 113.
Potter Gray scored higher than 100 in every category on the test.
Much to the students' delight, Tinius kept his promise.
"You always try to think of ways to motivate kids. Sometimes you've got to do something kinda crazy to get them excited about doing something," Tinius said.
He also promised to let the students who scored Distinguished in on-demand writing sign his head.
The state wants every school to score above 100 by the year 2014 so Potter Gray is well ahead of schedule.
