Hello from Grayson! Exciting things are happening this week. We have Nightrageous 3 on Friday, which is going to be AWESOME! Friday, we also have the Young Audience of Houston coming to our campus to give an Aztec dance performance. On Wednesday, I was able to be “Principal for the Day,” and I wanted to share some of the duties I had to complete.
First, I greeted all the teachers and then I helped out with carpool and greeted middle school students as they arrived. After carpool, I got to assist Mr. Mitch in his music class. My next task was to meet with Mrs. Ginger about a field trip budget, and then Mrs. Debi about the graduation program. After both of these meetings I was then able to help Mr. Mitch prepare and set-up a puppet show stage for Nightrageous. We had a lot of fun and I was a huge help. Finally, my morning ended with helping Mr. Jaime replace the water bottles in the office. It was cool that I got to use the dollies.
During the second half of the day I had a special lunch from SmashBurger and ate in the office with Mr. Justin. During lunch I changed the recess policy and allowed students to use their laptops and passed out donuts. Then to make it even better I extended recess for an extra 10 minutes. All the students were so happy and thanked me. They said I was the “best principal ever, and that I rocked!” After recess I went with Mr. Justin and did a tour of the school to check on classrooms and teachers to make sure everything was going well. All the teachers were great and didn’t need my help, however I did console a student who was having a tough time calming down. We had a serious talk and I told him thanks for being such a good teammate. After our observation and walk-throughs, the leadership team and I had a meeting to discuss future activities here at Crossroads. I was able to convince them that we should take a field trip to Exitus VR. We will do more research, but I got everyone excited about making this a possibility. My day ended by writing an email to the teachers and writing this article for the newsletter.
Overall, “my day was great and my favorite part was all of it.”
