PONCA, Neb. -- A northeast Nebraska school administrator has gone above (the school) and beyond to spread Christmas cheer this holiday season.

In the latest escalation of Elf on the Shelf, Ponca High School principal Allison Stansberry was spotted on top of the school taking on the role of the elf.

Stansberry was seen on the roof at the start of school, when temperatures hadn't yet risen above 15 degrees Fahrenheit.

Monday was the last full day of school before the holiday break for Ponca High School, with Wednesday officially serving as the last day of the quarter.
