Surprise Assembly for Richland Elementary School Principal

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. - Educational Bosses Week is next week, but students and staff at Jefferson Elementary in Richland celebrated early.

They honored Principal Bobbi Buttars with a surprise assembly Tuesday afternoon.

Staff members distracted her with a fake meeting, then led Buttars to the gym where the  whole student body greeted her.

The principal said, "It's just a great place to work, our staff is like family as you can see they'll do everything for everyone.  Apparently they thought it was nice to make it extra special this week so, it's overwhelming."

During the assembly kids from each grade level presented the principal with a song, banner, flowers or something else special they put together.
