On Wednesday, June 5, and Thursday, June 13, 4th Graders Alex and Ava Dimos were Principals for the Day at The Chapel School. Their days consisted of welcoming students on car line, running Emergency Drills, signing executive orders granting homework passes for all of fourth grade, a non-uniform day and “Crazy Hat and Hair Day”. They handed out Workers of the Week certificates, thanked Mrs. Cox’s 1st Grade and Mrs. Blanco’s 3rd Grade for leading worship, and introduced Athletic Director Mr. Walsh and Music Director Mr. Heath to hand out Spring Sports Awards and Choir Awards. They also did some classroom observations in Mrs. Hillier’s 2nd Grade, Mrs. Zaccone’s 4th Grade and Mrs. Blanco’s 3rd Grade. Alex even had a brief Senior Pastor/Principal meeting with Pastor Hartwell before checking in with Mrs. Condolff and heading to The Bronxville Diner for a quiet, power lunch.
When asked what their favorite part of the day was, Ava and Alex both said, “I really enjoyed visiting the classrooms and seeing what different teachers were doing with their students.” These experiences were the result of a prize won at the 2019 Masquerade Gathering of Friends Gala on May 3.
