MEI Elementary School vice-principal Grant Wardle (left) and principal Shawn Burkinshaw started a camp-out on the school’s roof on Tuesday afternoon with plans to stay until morning. The pair offered to spend a night on top of the school as an incentive for students to raise more than $40,000 for Heart to Heart Haiti, a school and children’s home. The students collected more than $47,000 as part of ongoing fundraising efforts.
