Once again, as proclaimed by a National Congressional Resolution passed by the Senate and House of Representatives, October, 2018, is officially recognized as National Principals Month.

This esteemed national recognition is most significant and serves to recognize the dedicated service and professional commitment of principals and assistant principals both nationwide and in each individual state, including Rhode Island.  

Below is a listing of the many activities that have been established and/or scheduled to recognize principals and assistant principals during this celebrated time period. Also, be comfortable sharing this message with your staff and parents. You deserve the recognition!

  • Capitol Hill Event: On October 3rd, join us on Capitol Hill for an event highlighting federal support for principals and the impact a principal has on their school and community. This event will be live-streamed if you cannot attend in person.
  •   Video Contest: Students can create fun videos about how much their principal means to them and submit their creation as part of our Student Video Contest. Submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. on        October 5.
  •   #ThankAPrincipal: Students, teachers, and principals can post about their school’s celebrations on social media with #ThankAPrincipal. Access our social media toolkit for sample posts and graphics.
  • National Principal Shadowing Week: For the second year in a row, October will also include National Principal Shadowing Week, taking place October 15–19. We encourage principals to take this opportunity to ask a federal, state or local elected official or their staff to shadow them for a day so they can experience firsthand the responsibilities and challenges principals face.
