Local business leaders spent Tuesday morning shadowing our school principals as “Principal for a Day.” The popular event is an opportunity for business leaders to experience the day-to-day responsibilities and challenges of managing a public school, and to witness the outstanding teaching and learning occurring in our classrooms.  Participants shared their experiences at the end of the event – some of which were very touching, and others that were pretty funny – all of which depicted a typical school day.

We want to thank the business leaders who spent their morning meeting our students and staff and witnessing ‘the heart’ of public education:

  • Paula Walker, Confluence Law Center
  • Debbie Maloy, Avamere at Sandy
  • Valarie Salazar, Ant Farm
  • Brian Patterson, Peak Mortgage
  • Katie Wilson, Clackamas County Dept. of Public & Government Affairs
  • Shannon Givens, Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce
  • Sarina Nickerson, Mt. Hood Hospice
  • Lisa Foster, LT Travel, and
  • Landyn Shanks, Cascade Chiropractic

Principal for a Day has been sponsored by the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce, and organized by their Career Education Committee, for the past 10 years.
