This year’s Principal for a Day event was held on Thursday, October 29, 2009.  The Principal for a Day Program allows businesses and organizations the opportunity to visit a school and shadow the principal to increase public awareness of the accomplishments and challenges at CPS.  The goal of Principal for a Day is that all PFADs will continue to engage themselves, their companies, organizations or associations in continued involvement and support throughout the year at their school.  The four Principals for a Day that visited Woodlawn Community School were Mr. John Fish of University Church, Julie Parente of the Museum of Science & Industry, Dr. Henry Wiggins of St. Bernard Hospital, and Mr. Abdul Rasheed Akbar of Akbar Enterprises.
