Round Hill Elementary School kindergarten student Rudy Reyes-Velasquez hugs his principal Cory Hawks, after placing a strip of duct tape over him, close to the end of the school day on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014. According to Hawks, 220 students were eligible to duct tape him to the wall because they either had zero absences or two tardies for the month of November and December. He said attendance went up for the two months quite a bit. Hawks was taped to the wall for about an hour and a half. For students who couldn’t add a piece of duct tape, they could still pass by and take a look at their principal stuck to the wall. “The kids were very excited about doing this. It’s all about making them happy and try and encourage them to come to school,” Hawks said.
