MONROEVILLE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - Students at St. John-Emmanuel Lutheran School in Monroeville got a break from class Wednesday morning.

It became quite the "sticky" situation. The school's principal, Axel Gruen, made a promise to his students that if they raised $1,000 for the Lutheran Malaria Initiative, he would let them tape him to the wall.

The students rose to the occation and raised more than the agreed goal. The money will help buy mosquito nets for children in Africa.

The students relished in the moment of taping their principal to the wall.
