LANSING, Mich. — It was a beautiful day to work outside, or for one school - on the roof.

Wendy Hofman, Head of School, and Sheila Dyskstra, Elementary Principal, worked from Lansing Christian Schools' roof on Tuesday, October 8, to the delight of the students.

They did it to celebrate recent successes at the school.

For instance, they say that last week the PreK3 through 5th grade students at Lansing Christian were joined by a herd of friendly dinosaurs and took part in the annual Fund Run to help raise financial support for the school.

They added that this year, the middle and high school students joined in the dinosaur fun by raising almost $5,000 to see their teachers race in t-Rex costumes.

"In total, we raised over $24,200 to support the exceptional programs and resources our school offers and continue to reduce the cost of tuition for all LCS families," they said.

"Our community coming together to support making tuition affordable for every student that goes here means a lot. It's encouraging for everyone here," Hofman said.

Along with helping keep tuition affordable, the money will be used to pay for different programs.

Students did go to class inside on Tuesday, but took turns going outside to visit their administrators and hear a story from the roof.

Hofman and Dykstra greeted the students from the roof, lead an outdoor prayer, and even read stories to elementary students.

Then they oversaw school pick up at 3 p.m.
