On Thursday, November 30th, 2018 MPH PBIS Student Principal for the day Justus Stewart shadowed MPH Administration. Student Principal Justus Stuart received this opportunity by selling the most popcorn during the recent PBIS Popcornopolis fundraiser. During this his second time being Principal for the day he had the opportunities to view morning transportation, walk the campus, assist with facilities needs, encourage students during lunches, and share his insight. He stated he thought the new minimum days were a “great plan because it gives teachers time to grade after school” and helps students learn how to transition from class to class like 7th grade. Additionally, he shared “I think PBIS Lion Loot is a good idea that you get rewards for doing good things like helping someone.” Finally, he shared he would like to someday be a math teacher, then a Principal. “Today influenced me a lot and showed what principal’s do, and it is super awesome!”
