Harper Dunn at Shelburne Community School was recently chosen to be the Principal of the Day by SCS’s new Principal Alison Celmer.
Here is Harper signing some paperwork. During the day as principal, Harper toured the school and read to classes, welcomed staff and students to their day, helped with the breakfast cart and joined in as teachers problem-solved throughout a busy day.
Harper, a fourth grader, was chosen to be Principal of the Day because he was nominated by his teachers Ellen Farnsworth and Adam Giles for going above and beyond.
Principal of the Day (chosen monthly) is an idea of Principal Celmer’s as a way to build positive school culture. Other examples are Leave No Trace, meaning to pick up after yourself and leaving areas better than when you found them, and positive office referrals when people go above and beyond in helping others.
Principal Harper took the initiative to notice laptops were not plugged in and he took care of it himself without anyone asking. His leadership and Principal Celmer’s fresh ideas are really making community stand out at Shelburne Community School.
