October is National Principals Month, and NJPSA is joining the National Association of Secondary School Principals, the National Association of Elementary School Principals, and the American Federation of School Administrators in honoring the hard work and dedication of America’s principals all month long. To principals everywhere, particularly those in New Jersey, we say "Thank you for everything you do for our students!" As you plan your National Principals Month activities, be sure to check out our resources for celebrating and share what you’re doing by posting to social media with #ThankAPrincipal.
