October is National Principals Month!

What Is National Principals Month?
The past year and a half has ushered in some dark days, yet principals across the country have persisted as beacons of light in their communities. Not only have they gone above and beyond to ensure their students’ academic success, they’ve also worked tirelessly to protect the health and safety of every person in their learning communities — often with little or rapidly changing guidance. With every new challenge, they’ve risen to the occasion and led their learning community forward with the bold leadership it deserves because they are the experts in what their students and schools need.

Celebrated every October, National Principals Month is an opportunity for district leaders, elected officials, parents, students, teachers, staff, school leaders, and communities to celebrate and honor our incredible principals for their visionary leadership and tireless pursuit of success for each student.

National Principals Month is a collaboration between American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).

TASSP sends a Texas-sized thank you to every principal for your daily leadership in fostering a positive climate and culture for your students and staff.

As you plan your National Principals Month activities, be sure to check out resources for celebrating and share what you’re doing by posting to social media with #ThankAPrincipal.
