October is National Principals’ Month!

ncpapaThe National Association of Secondary Principals (NASSP) and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) have declared October 2015 as National Principals Month.
The North Carolina Principals & Assistant Principals’ Association (NCPAPA) supports this effort and wishes to recognize all North Carolina principals for the essential role that they play in leading schools and communities in this state.
Principals are among the hardest working, yet often least recognized individuals in education. Principals set the academic tone for their schools, and it is their vision, dedication, and determination that provide the mobilizing force for achieving student success. Each October, NASSP and NAESP seek to honor these unsung heroes for their tireless efforts in pursuit of excellence in education. (NASSP, 2015)
We at NCPAPA would like to show that North Carolina leads the way by ensuring that every principal in this state is recognized for the great job that they do during the month of October.
We hope that you will join with us in celebrating our school leaders by using some of the tips provided or by using another method.  Please help us to achieve our goal of having every principal in North Carolina recognized during the month of October.
