(Tuesday’s principal-for-the-day Alyssa Ruiz and principal Aida Fraser-Hammer)

One of the more unusual prizes donated for Chief Sealth International High School‘s recent auction was the chance to be “principal for a day.” This past week, a Sealth junior claimed the prize. The story and photos are from Sealth principal Aida Fraser-Hammer:

On Tuesday 3/22/2016, Chief Sealth International High School had a new principal at its helm. She is 11th grader Alyssa Ruiz who was principal for the day. Principal Fraser-Hammer’s job was auctioned off at the PTSA Passport to Excellence Dinner and Auction. The successful bidder for this item donated it to Sealth’s LINK Crew, a leadership group for 11th and 12th graders.

Alyssa spent her day as Principal visiting classrooms, talking to teachers, counselors and students about the educational process. She also supervised the lunchroom and halls during passing periods. Her most memorable experience as principal was attending the Race and Equity meeting which started at 7:00AM. She was amazed that teachers and administrators actually got together to talk about how to address issues of school climate and equitable access to all. Alyssa ended her day as Principal at an Open House for the Academies of Finance and Hospitality & Tourism which ended at 7:30. This was indeed a long day for Alyssa but she is happy to have spent the day in the role as Principal at Chief Sealth International High School.
