School Principals’ Day
It’s sad, but it’s funny. The principal is always the main villain in high school shows, and we rarely see a supportive principal. We are forced to conclude that principals are our enemy and enemy. School Principals Day aims to change this and raise awareness about how important a school principal is to its success. You may have multiple principals. But what do these mysterious and often misunderstood staff members actually do? It may surprise you to learn that they do more than terrorize students or administer suspensions, detentions and expulsions. These were the core beliefs of students and their parents. The Teacher’s Association created a celebration to celebrate the hardworking principals of schools, and to raise awareness about the importance of the school’s role. Principals think about how to make students more successful and how to manage teachers and students expectations. Principals often substitute for teachers who are sick. They are able to interact with students and make learning enjoyable. They should not be viewed as authority figures. Instead, they should be seen as teachers who are trying to make a difference in children’s lives. Sometimes, it’s just for venting. The Principal is the school counselor for everyone. And we do mean everyone! We mean everyone! Invite them to your classroom and, when they open the door for you, surprise them with gifts. It’s not possible to express the same emotion with a typed letter so it’s best to send handwritten thank you letters from your pupils. A nice box of chocolates is a great gift for someone who can’t speak much. You can also ask the pupils to share one or more of their favorite things about the principal. You can express your feelings about the principal in a personal or general way. For example, how they cheered up you when you were down or how they helped improve the food at the cafeteria. Make a thank-you pop-up card to show your appreciation for the hard work they put into making your school great. Consider a time when the principal showed that they care about the school. With all the YouTube tutorials, it’s simple to make a pop up card. Because it takes time and effort to create, it’s a personal gift. These bespoke gifts will be kept by the principal in their scrapbook so that they can look back at their careers and know they were loved. Children should take photographs at school for one time, provided they are with their principal. Use the hashtags to celebrate the occasion in social media. A few photos of the principal and pupils would not make it seem like an important occasion. You should encourage the whole school to participate. A Facebook group may be a good idea to create a group. Every class could make a banner with a sentence that expresses your affection for the principal. You can express your gratitude by writing a note, such as ‘Thanks for all that you do’ or “We love your smile”. You’re bound to find someone at school who can fly drones. It would be amazing to have a drone take of the entire school holding their banners. It would show the school’s scale, and all the faces that the principal has helped. It’s possible to go viral by showing the principal that you care. Your actions will not only have an impact on the principal, but also the school. Many children will be influenced by positive leadership reinforcement. Although the principal is hardworking, the pupils and their parents don’t understand the pressures they face. A day of appreciation provides the ideal opportunity for younger generations to understand the importance of taking responsibility and donating your time to help others grow. Although children need role models, they are rarely exposed to such positive people. Their principal should be an example of what it takes to be a great leader.
