Principal for a Day

Jennings Elementary had a new principal for the day on Monday.  Emma Grace Gary, a third grader, traded points earned for positive behavior to be principal for the day. To begin her day, Emma and Principal Dr. Kieran Coleman visited the Jeff Davis Parish School Board Central Office then returned to the campus to address student behavior and even observe classrooms and offer advice.

“Her first question of the day was, ‘When do we eat?’” Coleman said.  “Emma did a very good job. I’m surprised at how well she did, not because I didn’t think she could do it, but because some things I thought would be difficult for her to understand. But she picked up very quickly on everything she had to do.”

Once a month for three months, the school will have a student principal for the day.
