This is a guest post, written by a fabulous sixth grader, Haley, who earned the chance to be “Principal for the Day.” I enjoyed working with her! She is a responsible, enthusiastic, highly participatory young lady!
You’re probably wondering, “What is it like to be the principal for a day?” Well it it’s a very fun experience that you get to have with your principal.When I was her helper for that day I went on the iPad for a little (don’t worry it was learning games!) and then we went to go and visit some classrooms. I think that it is fun to go to classrooms to see the other students and what their teachers are teaching them. Each student tells you different things and each classroom is different.
Kindergarten students are very careful of what they to do make sure that they’re doing what their teacher told them to do. They love to share their art work that they and and anything else that their doing or that they made.
The first graders are either doing something with spelling or they have an activity their teacher has them doing. They are very curious when you come into their classroom and they ask you questions. Some of them just stare at you like they ask, “What are you doing, and why are you here?” It’s pretty funny!
Now second grade is different. Some of them know me, so when I came in they said, “Hey, aren’t you Davin’s sister?” I always say, “Yes, I am.” Second graders have interesting facts to tell you and are good at working on computers.
We watched third grade rehearse for their upcoming concert. They listened to the music teacher very well. There were student speakers who gave good performances. Their singing was good and loud!
Fourth grade has different opinions on math some of them like it and others dislike it. Some of them thought that it was cool to be the principal for the day and others thought it wasn’t that great, but hey, everyone has their own opinions, right?
Fifth grade is on task and are quiet. They follow their directions very well. They all are very good students, in my opinion.
Sixth grade can be noisy. They joke around and are funny. Mrs. Twaddell’s class was eating pudding for a science experiment. LOL!
After I visited the classrooms I made cards for the people that had birthdays in April, and then I went to watch the third graders practice their concert. After that I ate lunch with some second graders and fourth graders with Mrs. Hilt in her office. We counted the Brecknock Bucks and then I visited fourth grades classrooms. Then I started to type this blog post.
The reason I shared on this blog is because I want to let you know that being the principal for the day is really fun and is a great experience to have. I hope you will get to have this day with Mrs. Hilt.
