The National Association of Secondary Principals (NASSP) and the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) have declared October 2013 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 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 behind any school reform effort. National Principals Month seeks to honor these unsung heroes for their tireless efforts in pursuit of excellence in education. (NASSP, 2013)
We at NCPAPA recognize and salute you for the great job that you do daily, not only during October, National Principals Month, but every month of the year.
