High school students in the small western Washington community of Tenino (Ten-NINE-o) are raising money for a cause — supporting orphans at a school in the west African country of Ghana.

One unconventional strategy: they're playing the Justin Bieber song "Baby" during breaks between classes and at lunch time until the campus raises $500. They hope students will donate to stop the school from paying the song.

KING-TV reports they have raised more than $330. Some students were quickly pleading for an end. Said student Zack Chamberlain, "My head is about to explode right now."

Student government president Connor Stakelin concedes that "for some of them it's incentive to donate because they don't want to hear it anymore."

Other students don’t mind the Bieber music. It’s the repetition that’s getting to them.

“We’re done listening to that song over and over again. It’s getting very bad. I just want to go home,” said Jasmine Moore, a student.

KING says the idea to support Crossover International Academy came from Tenino Elementary School Principal Dave Ford.

Tenino is about 60 miles south of Seattle.

Critical thinking challenge: If Justin Bieber is bad, what song would be worse? Or would song would you not mind hearing over and over again?

I don't mind Justin Bieber that much it's just his personality. I think he is cute and i like his music. i wouldn't mind hearing song every break. But the kids donating money not to hear a song is pretty selfish.
Why don't the just donate the money to to donate and be nice.

Justin Bieber doesn't really have bad songs, his voice was just really high before. Now he's actually a really good singer. Bieliber for life! And he is really cute!

Raising money is good cause, but hoping they you will raise money by playing a Justin Bieber song is just ridiculous. That's like playing with fire. They are risking it and hoping that they don't get burned. They might not reach their goal. So they should think about that.

This unconventional method of raising money is well...Brilliant! Playing an annoying song during the students break until they raise 500 dollars is really brilliant. It's pretty much torture to any ears it touches, which makes the students want to pay to turn it off. They aren't forced by any means to pay any money, but they probably will dropping some dollars in by the end of the day.

I think we could all agree that the song "baby" is Justin Bieber's most annoying song yet. One song I could never get tired of is "The Way" by Ariana Grande and Mac Miller. I think today's most annoying song is "Happy" by Ferrel. I think this is a good way to raise money. I would pay any amount to get out of that torture!

He's not that bad and none of his songs are bad he just needs to clear his head more then he does now. A song I would like to hear play over and over again would be "play it again by Luke Bryan".

when i was reading about this passage i was happy to hear about how they are donating money to an orphanage. then when they said how they got their and how they raised i thought to my self these people are clever. A lot of kids don't like him ,but on the other hand people can listen to him for years . But everyone gets tired of listening to the song over and over again.

I don't think schools should torture kids to raise money for the school. I think that should be illegal. I mean come on now. Torturing kids with annoying music and making them pay so they could turn off the music.

I think it's funny how schools play Justin Bieber songs and all the kids at the high school hated it, I also hate Justin Bieber and I say a lot of the quotes kids said in the article.

perfect they could do that in all schools and then they can get lots more money. But they have to play more than one song. What if the kids got to skip a song by paying money but after break the loop would start all over again from that song even if it was half way threw the song.
