NORMAN PARK, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia principal got attacked by students on Wednesday, but he actually asked for it.

Norman Park Elementary Principal Stacey Rutledge told students if they raised more than 25-hundred dollars for their annual United Way Drive they could duct tape him to a wall.

The students easily surpassed the goal.

 The two classes that raised the most got to pelt the principal with water balloons. 

"When students brought in a dollar they got to purchase a piece of tape and they were going to tape me to the wall so I think they did a pretty good job," said  Rutledge. "Our community really got behind this and I really cant say thank you enough about that."

Lowe's donated all of the tape for the event. 

The fundraiser is still going on through November 11.
