Event Description:

Principal for a Day, Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Jersey City Public Schools, Hudson County Chamber of Commerce, and SILVERMAN, invite you to participate in our Seventh Annual Principal for a Day, (PFAD) Wednesday, May 9, 2018. As a PFAD, you will be paired with a Jersey City public school to spend the day alongside the real principal. 

Our goal is for you to witness examples of school success and learn first-hand about the challenges our schools face. We hope you will develop long-term productive relationships that strengthen our community and support enhanced student achievement. This partnership between Jersey City Public Schools and the Chamber of Commerce is an effort to promote local business involvement in our public schools.  Since 2012, over 240 Principals for a Day made lasting impressions on the schools, children, teachers, and administrators. The business and community leaders shared a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm. 

In addition to the main event on May 9th, please join us for a pre-PFAD cocktail party, Tuesday, May 1, 2018, 6-8 PM where you’ll meet fellow volunteer Principals for a Day and JCPS administrators. Also, please mark your calendar for a follow-up meeting with all participating Principals and Principals for a Day to share and celebrate your experiences. You may choose, either the breakfast or lunch follow-up meeting Thursday, June 28, 2018.

Please click here for a registration form. Please respond by 4/2/2018.

Once registered, you will receive an email with your school assignment and other pertinent information before the big day.
