Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Nothing pleases children more than seeing their principal with wild hair.

The PTA asked Harrison Elementary Principal Chris Gilette what she would do if the students met their mathathon goal.

If the students raised at least $8,000 Gilette would dye her hair the school colors, red and blue. If the students raised at least $9,000, the vice–principal would have red hair and for $10,000, the school mentor goes blue.

Well Harrison students ended up raising more than $11,000. This money annually helps the pta buy items for the school.

"For instance, they bought the rock climbing wall and swing set and they bought new curtains for the stage and this year they bought new speakers and clickers for the smartboards so that kids can hear when the teacher shows a science video, they can hear it better, something that benefits Harrison," says Gilette.

In the past, the school has raised between $7,000-$8,000 annually.
