La Crosse student finds out what it’s like to be “Principal for a Day”

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A 5th-grader at Southern Bluffs Elementary School stepped into big shoes Friday.

Abby Frost was Principal for a day and spent her school day seeing what it takes to run a school.

She started her day greeting students, and later read a book to younger students and met with district leaders.

Frost said she enjoyed going behind the scenes.

“The custodians and the other people who run the building, they showed me around the school and we got to go in some cool stuff that students don’t usually get to go in,” said Frost.

She won the role in a holiday fundraising auction.
