TOMBALL - Parents, business, and civic leaders are invited to serve as Principal Partners in Tomball ISD on Tuesday, November 19. This program allows community leaders to partner with a Tomball ISD campus principal and serve as a Principal for a Day.
The program is in place to increase awareness and understanding of the strengths and challenges of schools within the district.
“We look forward to this event every year as it provides an opportunity to partner with those in our community who share a commitment to education here in Tomball ISD,” Dr. Amy Schindewolf, Chief Academic Officer, Tomball ISD, said.
On November 19 from 8-11 a.m., the partners will spend time with the principal, faculty, and students sharing ideas and learning about the school’s day-to-day operations. A guest principal might teach a class, meet with student council members, attend student performances, read to students, shadow the principal, or address a class assembly.
Partners will be matched with an elementary, intermediate, junior high, or high school based on the participant’s area of expertise, interests, and the school’s needs. At the end of the visit, all guest principals will convene with Tomball ISD Superintendent of Schools Dr. Martha Salazar-Zamora and discuss their experiences and potential plans for future involvement with their host school at a luncheon to be held in their honor.
Community members interested in signing up should complete the Principal Partners Application. The deadline to apply is Thursday, November 14.
