MIDVALE, Utah -- The principal of an elementary school in Midvale set up an unusual campsite Thursday night to reward students who exceeded their goals in a fundraiser.

The principal of Midvalley Elementary School, Jeff Nalwalker, said the cold and rain almost made him reconsider, but he wanted to follow through on a promise he made to his students, who had reached a fundraising goal they had set.

"This whole job is about motivating kids," he said.
