Twenty-eight community leaders accepted the invitation to be a Principal for a Day at Hemet Unified School District schools to shadow and experience the responsibilities of an administrator on Thursday, March 14th. Participants included Captain Glen Brock from the City of Hemet Police, Scott Brown for the Hemet Fire Department, and County Supervisor Chuck Washington.
Participants were involved in various activities at each site such as classroom visits, reading to students, delivering the morning announcements, and jumping into the culture of each school. Todd Robbins from AALRR visited Alessandro High School and participated in a student graduation ceremony. He expressed to the Alessandro team, “Thank you for being such gracious hosts for the Principal for a Day event. It was truly an honor for me to get the opportunity to spend a morning with you and to see the great things you and the team are doing. I really enjoyed the chance to get to meet the students and staff and to observe the good work that is happening in your classrooms and on your campus.”
The day concluded with a luncheon at the District Office. Superintendent Christi Barrett answered questions and led a discussion of the state of the District. Many participants expressed that they would like this to be an annual event and enjoyed seeing the students and staff working together firsthand.
