Principal for a Day

Luciana Tiberio and Bob Tucker took part in Chicago Public School’s Principal for a Day October fundraiser. Principal for a day is an opportunity for local philanthropic organizations and businesses to learn about Chicago Public Schools and interact with students, teachers and principals.

Working along side Thurgood Marshall Middle School’s Principal Paul Flaherty, Luciana read the morning announcements, handed out pumpkins for the homeroom decorating contest and visited several classrooms. Along with volunteering her time, The Urban School Foundation’s contribution to the school and helped to purchase new sports equipment.

Bob Tucker lead the charge at Schurz High School pep rally, along with volunteer friend and local radio personality Dougie Stylz. It was Shurz’s first pep rally in three years. Needless to say the students were excited as can be for their homecoming weekend.

Attending the Principal for a Day Reception at Navy Pier later that evening, USF was excited to hear that the day helped raise $1.8 million in monetary donations as well as additional support, program and training pledges from volunteer principals. We also were able to meet some of our talented students presenting everything form their newest robot inventions to their talented dance skills.
