Did you know October is Thank a Principal Month?
According to nassp.org:
"Each October, National Principals Month recognizes the essential role that principals play in making a school great.
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, NAESP, and AFSA seek to honor these unsung heroes for their tireless efforts in pursuit of excellence in education.
National Principals Month is a widely recognized celebration of the principalship, marked by national and state resolutions supporting the event, as well as acknowledgements from U.S. Senators and Representatives, and top government officials. However, the most important National Principals Month celebrations are the ones that take place in schools and communities across the country."
Each week in October Canon-McMillan School District will be recognizing principals at every level of education. This week we'd like to recognize our Intermediate level elementary principals (in no particulare order):
- Mr. Robert Kleinhans of Cecil Intermediate School
- Dr. Mark Abbondanza of North Strabane Intermediate School
Thank you Canon-McMillan School District Intermediate Principals!
