Michael Swartz, principal at Wildwood Elementary, has a knack for delighting his students and motivating them to read with fun and creative challenges.

Last year, it was blue hair, a Superman costume and lunch on the roof.

This year, to celebrate third grade students reading more than 2,000 books during the second semester of the school year, Swartz agreed to a mohawk makeover.

The students responded to the challenge, and Swartz recently got his new do on the playground.
