October is National Principals Month!

October marks the celebration of a special group of leaders in our community – our school principals. These dedicated individuals play a pivotal role in shaping our students’ futures and the trajectory of our education system.

This month-long celebration is an opportunity to recognize and thank our principals for their unwavering dedication, exceptional leadership, and remarkable impact on student success. Share your appreciation using the hashtag #ThankAPrincipal on social media, and visit principalsmonth.org for more resources and ways to get involved. Let’s come together to celebrate the extraordinary individuals at the helm of our schools and the difference they make every day transforming our communities. 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.
