Woodland teacher ‘jailed’ for a good cause

By From page A5 | December 06, 2012

Marianne Cates, principal of Holy Rosary School in Woodland, agreed to spend the day in “jail” on campus if students collected enough food for the KCRA Kids Can Food Drive this year. Students at the school collected, packaged and donated more than 3,877 pounds of food for the drive. The donations will help feed area families by stocking local food banks. Daring the principal to perform some kind of wacky stunt if the school reaches its goal for Kids Can has become a tradition at Holy Rosary in recent years. Last year, Cates kissed a donkey and the year before, she dressed in a hot dog costume for the day. Courtesy photo
