Name: COMMUNITY EVENT: Principal For a Day
Date: May 4, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
Event Description:

Together with Jersey City Public Schools, Hudson County Chamber of Commerce, and SILVERMAN, we invite you to participate in our Sixth Annual Principal for a Day, (PFAD) Thursday, May 4, 2017.

As a Principal for a Day, you will be paired with a Jersey City public school to spend the day alongside the real principal. Enjoy lunch with your principal at the school and make plans to join us for a follow-up meeting for all Principals for a Day at the end of June. We hope you and your organization will develop mutually rewarding relationships with our schools that will last far beyond this one day. Your participation will act as an example for other business leaders to help provide for the successful future of our community.

Since 2012, over 200 Principals for a Day made lasting impressions on the school children, teachers, and administrators. The business and community leaders shared a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm. This year we invite you to do the same.

Please join us for a pre-PFAD cocktail party, 5-7pm, Thursday, April 13, 2017, where you?ll meet fellow volunteer Principals for a Day, and JCPS administrators.

We invite you for a follow-up meeting for all school principals and Principals for a Day to share and celebrate your experiences. You may choose either the breakfast or lunch meeting Tuesday, June 27, 2017.

The partnership between Jersey City Public Schools and the Chamber of Commerce is an effort to promote local business involvement in our public schools. You will learn first-hand about the challenges our schools face and you will help develop long-term, productive relationships that strengthen our community and support enhanced student achievement. 

Please respond by Friday 4/7/2017. Questions? Contact Paul Silverman, or by phone at 201.435.4325. After you register, we will email you with your school assignment and other pertinent information before the big day.

Thank you for helping to make our schools great!
