Imagine that: a principal in a kiddie pool at Lakewood Ranch

That's Stephen Sajewski under the straw hat. (provided photo)

Stephen Sajewski, school leader at Imagine Charter School at Lakewood Ranch, agreed to sit in a kiddie pool and read books to students if the school book fair met its goal of $8,000 in sales.

Families and children beat the goal by buying $10,000 worth of books at the Scholastic Book Fair.

Sawjewski put on a pair of water wings and kept his end of the bargain by reading to students for 100 minutes. 

In addition to the books that children took home, Scholastic donated about $6,000 of books to the school media center.
