Meet Principal Michelle Caponigro

Hello, Wolverine families! If you would like to know the best thing about being a principal, I’ll tell you – it's the kids! A few fun facts about me: My current favorite young adult book is “The Hate You Give.” If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be roasted sweet potatoes. My bucket list includes the goal of living abroad for five years. I was once featured in the “Guinness Book of World Records” for being in the largest group of clarinet players ever assembled!
