Assistant Principals Week Graphic
Posted On: Thursday, April 8, 2021

Did you know that April 5 - 9 was National Assistant Principals Week? Canon-McMillan School District thought it would be a great idea to give the community brief backgrounds on who the assistant principals in your district are.. Assistant Principals do so much for their schools and deserve to be acknowledged for all of their hard work! They’re all very passionate about education and many of them have been with Canon-McMillan School District starting at different roles, in different buildings, for many years. Even though this week is National Assistant Principals week, you can thank your assistant principals any time of year!  Learn more about them below!
