Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you drove past Lewis and Clark Elementary today you might have noticed something out of place.

Principal Jason Cresap took to the rooftop and bared the cold temperature to read during the school day.

It's an effort to motivate his students on "Read Your Heart Out Day", part of a national incentive program by Pizza Hut, which challenges principals and students during National Young Readers Week.

Jason Cresap/Principal, Lewis & Clark Elementary: "You know we're here to motivate kids and I just want to show that I'm willing to do whatever it takes to encourage them to read and motivate them to read.”

Cresap says he might have to amp up the challenge for next year's program.
