Principal of the Day

Miss Morano should be nominated for Principal of the Year! She began her day greeting students as they entered the building and ran the school beautifully. Her work with the Assistant Principal, Miss Proctor, included getting a sub for one of her teachers, managed a few discipline issues with some of our "veteran students" (teachers in uniform) who got their phones taken away, sat in on some teacher observations, was called into the gym for an eighth grade protest against their teacher of the day, and of course, no administrator gets out of lunch duty.

Great work, Faith! I'm putting a good word in to the Fort Worth Diocesan Superintendent.

Assistant Principal of the Day

Miss Proctor's professionalism and keen eye for campus needs was stellar! She worked in tandem with Miss Morano to keep those "veteran students" in control. Checking in on teachers, conducting classroom observations, and assuming the glamorous duties such as lunch and hall duties were among the top assignments of the day. There were a few pop-up meetings with the business office and with individual teachers.

Hats off to our patient yet "get down to business" Assistant Principal, Miss Proctor!
