Principal for a Day at MMA
Student Erica Bichel was Marymount Academy’s principal on Friday December 14, 2012. Erica won much praise and prizes for having raised the most funds for her school’s extra-curricular programs through chocolate bar sales. Erica nominated her close friend Chiara Salvador as the vice-principal for the day. Erica and Chiara came to the school ready to tackle a school administrator’s work dressed not in their regular uniform but rather in professional attire. The young administrators did classroom; visits, health and safety inspections, P.A. announcements, rewarded students who demonstrated exceptional school spirit with cup cakes they baked, tested the equipment in the fitness room, prepared material for the S.I.S. (Sisters In Spirit) Christmas lunch activity and relaxed the school uniform for their peers. They also kidnapped and hid a teacher, made the teachers dance the chicken dance and made two teachers rap a math song to grade 12 students. After all of that hard work, they were treated to lunch by the real principal Lucie Cullen and Office Supervisor Pat Shewring. It was a fun filled day for everyone!
