TULSA, Oklahoma -- Despite chilly north winds, Tulsa's Holy Family Cathedral School principal spent the school day Monday on the roof of the downtown school.

The school is located at 820 South Boulder.  Principal Jay Luetkemeyer says students surpassed their fundraising goal, so he spent the day on the school's roof.

He is also planning on being on the roof for 24 hours on March 3, 2011, if the fundraising campaign reaches its next goal of $5,000.

"This year, Holy Family is focusing on improving our roof. We hope to make these roof repairs over the summer, and we needed a way to energize the community and raise funds for this project. Thus the "Raise the Roof" campaign was born and our community can put me up of the roof on a cold February day," said Jay Luetkemeyer.

MidFirst Bank is matching dollar for dollar up to $1,000 collected during the campaign.
