Mike Rogers, left, principal of Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary School in Maplewood, gets a pie in the face courtesy of seventh-grader Aaron St. Sauver on March 4 in the school gym. St. Sauver and other students got the chance to cover their  principal in whipped cream by being top sellers in the Catholic United Financial annual raffle. Rogers agreed to be the target if the school reached its goal of $24,960. A late donation of $1,000 pushed the school's total to just under $25,000, with more dollars expected to trickle in.

    Raising money for a great cause – that’s excellent. Doing so by subjecting the principal to physical humiliation — not so excellent. If you think it’s all light-hearted fun, take a look at the expression on the teacher’s face as she slams home that pie.
