Fields Road Elementary School was featured on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday night.

That’s because the Gaithersburg-based school recently raised over $13,000 during a record-breaking Read-A-Thon, and the fundraiser caught the attention of Fallon because of its “Egg Roulette” video starring the school’s principals.

On Friday night’s show, Fallon played a clip from the school’s video and he announced that the elementary school would be receiving another $13,000, thanks to Reddi-wip.

“Congratulations on raising $26,000 with your Read-A-Thon,” said Fallon. “I thought that was so cool.”

According to the PTA’s online newsletter, the money is being used for “move more” activities at the school.

On her Twitter account, Principal Erica Williams thanked Fallon and Reddi-wip for the matching donations. “We are so eggcited,” she tweeted.
