'Principal for a day' at Wilmot Elementary learns lessons in management

In her role as principal for a day, first-grader Josephine Trinco greeted students, oversaw a fire drill and learned about top-level responsibilities at Wilmot Elementary School on Nov. 18.

Accompanied by principal Matt Cormier, Josephine visited classrooms and handed out birthday cards to students after leading her classmates in the Pledge of Allegiance and making morning announcements.

During her tour of the school, Josephine asked students if they would like to create a new rule for the day. One suggestion was to allow gum-chewing in class.
