Thank you to all who participated in our
10th Annual Principal for a Day.
An Emmy award winning actress, a rock musician, a former State Attorney General, and many more business and civic leaders will be spending the day in the principal’s office on Friday, November 6 for the tenth annual Pasadena Unified Principal for a Day program. Sponsored by Merrill Lynch and coordinated by the Pasadena Educational Foundation, the program matches the talent and expertise of our community members with a school principal.
Principal for a Day is always an enlightening day of inspiration, exploration, and fun as our guest principals explore the challenges, participate in the victories, and share in the joy of being on a school campus.
