• WES student becomes ‘Principal For A Day’

    It’s not everyday that 8-year-old Nolan O’Connor dresses in a sharp lavender collared shirt and a tie and patrols the Williamstown Elementary hallways.
    Then again, the third grader also is not always in charge of the entire school.
    Nolan recently took over the reigns of principal for the day from David Poer after winning the opportunity at the fall festival auction.
    “I’m more like the vice principal,” said Nolan, admitting he doesn’t quite have the same powers as a real principal.
