Thanks to a student council-run endeavor, two students at West End Elementary School in the Lynbrook Public School District took on the role of principal on April 13.
The student council ran a fundraiser in which students could purchase tickets for a chance to win the opportunity of becoming principal for a day. The student council presidents picked two students from the raffle and announced them to the whole school over WebEx.
Third grader Declan Haunss and fifth grader Ethan Gatica were the lucky winners. Some responsibilities included making announcements, helping with the birthday wheel, holding a virtual assembly, visiting each classroom and giving out candy to teachers.
The student council raised $290, which will be donated to the North Shore Animal League.
