Principal for a Day takes the job in Onalaska

A new principal celebrated his position Friday in Onalaska.

3rd grader Ryan Laufenberg served as Principal for a Day at Irving Pertzsch Elementary.

As part of his duties, he got to check in on students, monitoring the halls and general keeping the students ready to learn.

Laufenberg says even in a leadership role, he was still learning.

“It’s a really nice job, you get to be able to watch what they other kids are doing and also it’s really nice,” said Irving Pertzsch Elementary Principal for a day.

Principal Laufenberg had the highest bid in a recent PTO Family Fun Night silent auction.
