Southern Bluff Elementary student become Principal for the Day!

A La Crosse elementary school was temporarily under the rule of one of its students!

Alex Heiderscheit served as Principal for the Day Friday of La Crosse’s Southern Bluffs Elementary. The new school leader’s day included morning announcements, classroom visits, supervising lunch and talking about how he would move the school forward.

He says the biggest surprise to being principal was just how many meetings he had to attend, but he still enjoyed it all.

“Work around and get stuff set up for the days,” said Heiderscheit. “It would be super fun and a huge part of my life.”

Heiderscheit won the chance to be Principal for a day through an auction at the PTO’s holiday fair.
