This morning a 5th grade student came up to me during arrival. He reached into his pocket and pulled out a folded up piece of paper. He told me to read and then went to class. Usually, these notes indicate a problem….Something I need to look into, investigate, etc. This letter was different.
To: Dr. Cook,
I think we should do a principal of the day at our school.
Because we can learn what being in office is like.
Some kids like myself have a dream of being a principal. I want to learn more stuff
about being a Principal like learning how to solve problems, and how to do write ups.
That is why I should be principal for a day.
What’s a principal to do? I sure could use the help!
I decided that the day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 22) I will allow Demear to be Principal For A Day.
Let me know if you have any ideas for Demear. I want to make sure I help him turn his dreams into reality!
