Pathways Elementary celebrates its principal with craft and song
Pathways Elementary Principal Gregory Schwartz received quite a surprise when he arrived at school on Wednesday, May 2.
Outside his window, school staff had arranged a special display on the school's lawn: colorful letters spelling "Happy Principals Day" adorned with fun shapes. Having just graduated from his principal interim program the night before, the recognition was like a celebration of his first year at Pathways.
Schwartz, who was promoted to principal in July of 2017, received cards and signs from students throughout the day. In the morning, Joan Wheeler's pre-K class paid him a visit to sing him a song and gift him with personalized cards. It's an example of the relationship he's been cultivating for the past year.
"The biggest piece is you want to build a relationship with the people in the school, and so that's my goal," Schwartz said.
