Tomball ISD Seeks Principal Partners for Fifth Annual Event
TOMBALL - Parents, business, and civic leaders are invited to serve as Principal Partners in Tomball ISD on Thursday, October 25.
This program allows community leaders to partner with a Tomball ISD principal and serve as a principal for the 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 October 25 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 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. to be held in their honor.
