Fernbrook fifth grader Emily Peia enjoyed being principal for a day and working with Fernbrook Principal Danielle Soldivieri.
“Being a principal is a lot more work than people think,” Emily said. “I did not realize that a lot of kids come in to see the principal every day.”
Emily said she was also excited to help call a fire drill, plan a spirit day and leave special kindness notes for her teachers.
Soldivieri said she enjoyed spending the day with Emily and having a pizza lunch with her and her friends. A moment later her phone rang and Emily jumped to answer it. It was Vice Principal Kristin Mueller and Emily was ready to help.
Emily won the chance to be the principal for a day in a special lottery.
