Principal For A Day

Chicago Public Schools is hosting the annual Principal For A Day on Thursday, October 29.  Ray School will have two returning principals, Mr. Jason Hale from ING, and Mr. Williie L. Pickens, renowned musician and Hyde Park resident.  Two other principals will join them, Mr. Dante L. Mosely, Vice President  of Business Development from the 57 Street branch of the Hyde Park Bank and Ms. Patrice Miner, President and CEO of Kiddie Kuts Salon here in Hyde Park.  The principals will breakfast with members of our local school council and our PTA  to begin the day.  They will have a tour of the school and have an opportunity to spend time in classrooms leading an activity.  Finally, they will sit on a panel to talk about their jobs and entertain questions from our fifth and sixth graders.   Our student council leaders will  moderate the discussion.  The morning will end with a luncheon at the Chicago Hilton and Towers.  We hope to build partnerships that will result in resources and opportunities for Ray School  students.
