Piazza Serves as Hinckley Principal for the Day

Chase and Mr. CarpenterHinckley Elementary 3rd grader Chase Piazza served as Principal for the Day on March 7 and learned the ropes of being a principal with Mr. Jim Carpenter (Hinckley Principal). He had several duties to take care of throughout the day including helping with morning announcements, office duties, inspecting the building, eating lunch with the principal, and of course, having his picture taken with the principal! This day was one of the many items auctioned off during the 13th Annual Highland Foundation Dinner & Benefit Auction held on November 4. Each elementary school participated in the auction. Chase is the son of Mike and Heather Piazza of Hinckley Township.

Pictured with Chase is Mr. Carpenter.
