It was definitely a fun day at one Lower Valley Elementary school. The principal at Mission Valley Elementary got a mohawk, as students cheered on in the audience.

So why did the principal do it? Well, he made a deal with students at the beginning of the year.

"I will do a mohawk if we are exemplary in math and reading and writing and science in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th grades and that's exactly what happened this past Friday and I have to pay up," said principal Ruben Cadena.

The principal credits teachers who put in extra work through tutoring sessions and of course, students' hard work, for their achievement.

Now thats a principal that sets an example of telling students to do well and also to keep your promises when made.

Recognition worthy for being involved with his students that he is responsible for. KUDOS! to you sir.

This was a great incentive for the kids. They loved the principal's personal involvement in their achievement. I have heard other kids from other schools wished their school did things like Mission Valley! Mission Valley is an awesome school.

admirable.....my nieces and nephews were trying twice as hard to do well, just to get the chance to see the principle with a mohawk. I'm glad he kept his end of the deal.
