Students get to be Principal for a Day

May 9, 2018
The Town Crier

Do you remember that anxious feeling you got when you were called to the principal's office? For three students at Union Elementary, reporting to the principal's office was their assignment for the day.

A student from kindergarten, first grade and second grade filled in as Principal for A Day from April 25 to 27. It was all part of the Union's effort to raise money for Poland's Relay for Life, which is June 23 at Dave Pavlansky Field. The Relay Committee sold raffle tickets, and a winning ticket was picked for each grade level. The raffle raised around $1,500.00 for the American Cancer Society.

Each day as principal started off with a call home, letting mom and dad know what was scheduled for the day, and it was a busy day. The "principals" walked around the school, and checked on every classroom to make sure everyone was safe, and doing what they're supposed to be doing. Then it was off to a meeting with the head custodian and a Poland Police Officer. Officer Steve Kent took the "principals" for a ride in his cruiser, which included a stop at the Board Office for a meeting with Superintendent Dave Janofa.

There were other stops throughout the day, one of the student principals delivered potted flowers from Union's Greenhouse to staff at the middle school.

Some of the "principals" have older siblings in the district, and called them into the principal's office, gave their sibling detention and even a no homework pass.

This is the first time Union has had "Principal for a Day."
