Experience the joys and responsibilities of leading a Metro Nashville Public School

Principal for a Day (PFAD) is an exclusive annual event that offers community members the opportunity to spend a morning with a Metro principal. As a Principal for a Day, guests will meet the school’s students and staff in a series of activities unique to each school. The day concludes with an optional in-person luncheon at Lipscomb University.

PENCIL’s 2021 Principal for a Day was on Thursday, October 21. Due to COVID-19, the school experience took place virtually during a time agreed upon between the principal and guest principal, followed by an in-person luncheon at Lipscomb University from 11:30 – 1 PM, including a speaking program from 12 – 12:30 PM.

More than 130 community members were deployed as Principal for a Day, seeing first-hand the dedication of MNPS staff, the enthusiasm of Metro students and work PENCIL does in the community.
