Principal of the Day~Malini Morgan

Friday, January 17

Dear Parents,

I’m Principal Malini Morgan and I had a fabulous friday as Principal for the day! First, I went on the news show to tell everyone who were the Principals for the day. Next I got my key and ID, so I was official as a principal. Then I got to walk all the way around the school to greet students and teachers. After I went to look in different halls to check them and we took notes. On the way, me and the other principals got pictures taken for the yearbook. Next I attended a meeting about the 25th anniversary for Midway and about the plans for it. Next I helped Mr. Bussell with textbooks. Then I went to recess with the 1st and 2nd grade and helped Ms. Fickling with the coats in lost and found. Then I got to eat a delicious chicken sandwich for lunch. After I was done with lunch, me and Ms. Fickling read to a 2nd grade class. I am very happy to be a principal for a day! It's one of the best days I had at school. I would love to have this experience again!
