If I was a principle for a week I would have kids have breakfast in school in the morning and the school would have hot lunch so they would serve pancakes, waffles, French toast, toast, bacon, and sausage.
I would have social studies shorter and science longer, and your teacher knows both of those so you don’t have to switch classes for those.
Then I would have I pads at the school instead of laptops for children and net books for 1st grade and under.
There would be hot lunch to and kids can bring there one lunch to.
Kids would also be aloud to bring and use skateboards and roller blades at recess.
There would be a baseball field in the back on the field and you could bring baseball bats gloves and balls but there are helmets in the office. There would be two soccer goals in the field to.
If you were a principle for a week what would you change?

Good morning I’m going to be a principal for one year. If I had a chance to change anything in the school it would be some of these things.
The first thing would be having a delicious breakfast and hot lunch. But it would be healthy for you because, some parents can’t afford enough food to their family. That way kids can eat at least two meals.
I would also go to 14 class rooms every day for a ½ hour to help the students. I would so that because, if the teacher is helping one child. I could help a different child.
In my school we don’t get a lot of time for lunch so, I would make lunch 30 minutes and recess 30 minutes.
All teachers would have a meeting every Wednesday day so they can leave early the rest of the week.
Then I would make a school T-Shirt that the students would were on there field trips. Then every class would have math in the morning.
Last but not least the students would have been bean bag instead chairs so they can feel like they are at home.
This is how I would run my school.

Make lunch time longer because most of the time people don’t finish their lunch in the regular time period. Then I would make recess longer, it would be for 20 min. instead of 15 min. so kids can get more of their energy out.
I would next schedule a school camp in the summer and it would be about sports and keeping active. The sports include Tennis, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Frisbee, and Football.
Then I would make it so every subject had really fun activities like social studies we would put Skittles on the places that we are leaning about on the map, and in sciense we would make different flavors of icecream mixing different ingredients.
That is what I would do if I were principal for a week, what would you do?

If I was the principal for one week for an elementary school, I would give the staff more payment. Because they work hard and it would be fair for them to get a bigger payment.
And I would want to have more school meetings so the students could give their talent a little more, and for more important stuff about school.
Then I would have more students in a class so more students could learn stuff, say about 35 kids in each classroom.
And those are the revisions I would make to the school if I was the principal for a week.

If I were the principal for a week I would say that every other week the school would have fun lunch. I would also cut math 5 minuets short and put those 5 minutes into part of recess. You would be able to use phones (not in class). You could eat when ever you want to. You could have parties when ever you want. I would have 1 meeting every week. The kids schedule would not always be so packed. When it is recess you can skateboard. I would also put out more sports equipment. Most important there would be no bullies.

Hello every one my name is Hannah and I will be your principal for this week! There will be a few changes that I will be telling you through out the week. Thank you.
Being principal is a lot I mean a lot of work. But it’s so amazing at the same time! You get to help children which I love to do. Everyone can I have your attention please? I am about to announce our first 2 new rules! Fun lunch is once every week! And we will have 2 art rooms! I am positive that this will be the best week of your life! Everyone started cheering which made me feel great. But a couple of people booed which I thought was rude. But as principal you have to make the hard decisions.
O.K everyone this is our last rule! Are you ready? We will have air conditioning! Now this time everyone cheers. (Which I hope stops soon which it does). But today is Friday, and I have to say good bye to this school. I never wanted to say good bye, but I have to.
