Warm thank you to our principal

But that's just from the teacher's point of view. Principals have to hear the teachers' issues, they have to deal with parents calling trying to get their kid in the virtual classroom, getting directives daily from the district, finding devices for everyone, and much more.
Our principal was incredible BEFORE the world turned upside down. Now, she's handling it all, helping teachers, parents, and students, while dealing with what the district is implementing. There are sleepless nights and incredible stress.
I organized a little drive today from the staff. We were all on campus today to drive through the local neighborhood with signs on our cars, honking our horns and waving at our students in their yards and on their porches. I asked the staff to bring items for our principal: toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, latex gloves, masks, disinfectant wipes, and hand sanitizer. Others brought wine and chocolate.
We couldn't take all her responsibilities off her back, but we could show her that we love and appreciate her.
