I can't imagine why the principal would object. However, it makes sense to advise him that you're running the program and to listen to any input he may have. If you do give gift cards to staff members, it's important that you collect receipts from them so you have a record of how the money was spent. For tax reasons, the money needs to be spent on school/professional items rather than personal ones.
