Lastly, today Jaden Dwiggins was the “Principal for the Day.” He would like to share the following message: I had a great day today and the staff is really amazing. I went around to the classrooms and got to share some of my fondest memories for each grade. The students were really respectful to me. My favorite part of the day was visiting the classrooms and seeing how happy the students were to see me. Being the Principal for the Day really showed me how hard it is to be a Principal. There is a lot to do in a day!!
