Craig Elementary Principal Bill Senti had no idea he would be starting a school-wide domino effect when he began wearing bow ties on Tuesdays.
Having first heard about Bow Tie Tuesday on Twitter at hashtag #bowtietuesday, Senti joined the trend, and soon after, Assistant Principal Berin Waller did too.
At the end of last school year, there was an unrelated surprise assembly for Senti and Waller at which the kids wore paper bow ties. This school year, with the addition of a few new male staff members, the idea of Bow Tie Tuesday spread. Perhaps not surprisingly, several male students also began wearing bow ties and now even the girls are getting in on the action – either wearing them traditionally like the boys, or sporting bows in their hair.
