How to pull off a Principal Night

To pull off a principal night you must first be in good standings with the school. Do not expect principals to come to you if you never go to them.

Steps to take:
1. Build Relationships
2. Make a face to face invite
3. Send an email blast to all principals.
4. If the principal can not come invite the VP
5. Do not down grade them if they can not come.
6. Make them a hero on stage
7. Give them a nice gift like provided meals for their teachers.
8. Do not make them look stupid on stage.
9. Provide a meal for them and their family.
10. Send them a thank you note for coming.
11. Before you send an email/walk into there office send a nice invitation through the mail.

Here is an email I sent to all the Principals leading up to the event:
I wanted to send a follow up to our invitation we sent out for you to attend Long Hollow's Student Crusade,Tuesday, the 19th of October.

We would like for you to arrive at 6:00pm for a meal for you and your spouse sponsored by Mom's in Touch.

The program will start at 7:00 pm where we want to make you the hero in front of all the students. We will play the game Corn Hole, which is a really simple game. The principal that wins the game will win lunch for all their teachers and staff. Lunch will be delivered to your campus by the Long Hollow Student Ministry staff.

This will be a fun night and the students will love it. I know most of you have already committed to attend this event, so if you have not, a quick reply would be sufficient for your reservation. Child care is available, please include your child's ages in the rsvp.

If for some reason you are unable to attend, would you please send someone in your place. We want all the students to see their school represented on stage.

We will have a great crowd of close to 2000 students that night so it will be a lot of fun. We would love for you to come!

Thank you for considering attending this event. Let me know if you have questions!

Thank you,

Brian Mills
