Principal for a Day
This past week was full of learning and special memories. We captured a few memories in the “Principal for a Day” video above. Highlights from the special day included:
Recognizing several students for special accomplishments including our Carnival MineCraft design winner, Sam. He entered the creation above into the school logo category and designed a massive grizzly bear and balloon. For anyone that’s ever used MineCraft, you know that the creation took lots of time and planning!
Accepting a very special book donation from one of our students. Zach shared a book about space that was written and autographed by Buzz Aldrin! The book will be available in our Media Center for others to check out.
Attending the 1st grade music program. The concert was the last 1st grade concert that Mrs. Gardner will lead. After many years of dedicated service, Mrs. Gardner is retiring. Thank you for the memories and fostering a life-long love of music in our students. (I had the privilege of taking a “Selfie” with Mrs. Gardner right before the show…she’s always such a great sport, and she shared that it was the first “Selfie” photo that she’d been in.
Thank you to everyone that shared some of their memories and meaningful moments as part of our Greenwood Greats Teacher Appreciation Week. Be sure to check-out the huge banner with our community’s stories posted in the main entryway. Don’t forget to follow our school’s hashtag #GWgreats to see some additional messages from our students.

We are picking our student for Principal For a Day at the end of May, you’ve given me some great ideas of things we can do!
That’s awesome! I reached out to my PLN and they had some great ideas for us to try. Our student “principal” had fun and it was neat to share her adventure in the form of this video. Good luck on your special day too!! Brad
