MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) -

Christmas came early for Murphysboro Middle School students who got to see their principal get hit in the face with a cream pie - twice.

It was the students' reward for reading and reaching their school's goal of raising $1,000 for Joplin tornado victims.

Murphysboro Middle School had their Fall Scholastic Book Fair from November 19-22. During the four-day period, they collected money for Joplin schools through the "One for Books" program offered through Scholastic.

Murphysboro Middle School Principal Bill Huppert agreed to take a pie in the face during a Thursday morning assembly if the kids reached the goal.

The students didn't stop fundraising at $1,000; they far surpassed their goal raising a total of $1,776.62. Principal Huppert held up his end of the bargain and graciously agreed to take a second pie in the face courtesy of the class that raised the second largest amount of cash for Joplin schools.
