Students Take Over at Miscoe Hill

Miscoe Hill Middle School students Madison Duplessis (Grade 5) and Michael Consigli (Grade 8) took over as Principal and Assistant Principal for the day on March 29.





It wasn't quite the Oval Office, but Miscoe Hill School 5th grade student Madison Duplessis and 8th grade student Michael Consigli took over another important office as Principal and Vice Principal for the Day on March 29. Both students spent the day shadowing their school leaders, Principal Ann Meyer and Dean of Students Anthony Amitrano, taking on some of the day-to-day tasks they would normally handle.

"We delivered work, kept control of the lunchrooms, and counted out pencils for the upcoming MCAS tests," said Madison, smiling brightly as she recalled her morning duties as "Principal."

Michael jokingly recalled the requests that his teachers had made to him as the new "Assistant Principal." "They asked me to have shrimp and lobster put on the daily menu at the cafeteria." He also said that he is completely ready to take over the Vice Principal's job at any time, even though his solo duty in lunch detention was "pretty crazy."

"This was such a nice experience for the students," said Miscoe Principal Ann Meyer. "They truly got to see what the life of a Principal and Assistant Principal would be."

The day was made possible by two individual fundraisers that benefitted the school. Madison's parents bid on and won a silent auction for Principal of the Day at the Rock and Roll Fundraiser put on by the Mendon-Upton Education Foundation back in November. The proceeds from the event were used to help fund an iPad initiative for a team of 7th grade students at Miscoe. Madison's mother, Kim Duplessis, said that it was an important fundraiser to her, not only because it allowed her daughter have this experience, but that she knew the money was going to a good cause. "I bid on this auction because I want the kids to have the technology in the schools, which I know other schools already have. It is very important to make learning fun as well as educational," she said.

Michael's parents won a raffle for Assistant Principal of the Day at the Miscoe Hill Sports Boosters 1st Annual Dodgeball Tournament Fundraiser in March, which helped to raise money for sports programs at Miscoe.
