National Principals Month

Did you know that October is National Principals Month?

Principals across the nation work hard to provide the best education and leadership possible, and this month is a time to show them how much they are appreciated.

The Shorewood School District is fortunate to have four amazing principals:

Janice Carter, Atwater Elementary
Tammy Rasco, Lake Bluff Elementary
Mike Joynt, Shorewood Intermediate School
Tim Kenney, Shorewood High School

(Pictured from top left, clockwise)

 Please show your principal how much you appreciate them for all they do. One of the ways you can do this is by sending them an E-Card here. (Hand-written cards also go a long way.) Another way to show your support is by advocating for our principals.

“Members of Congress are currently crafting and debating a sweeping, multitrillion dollar budget resolution bill that could include a number of school leader priorities and critical new funding for K-12 schools. Included in the House’s current version of the bill are $1.1 billion in funding to support the educator workforce and address shortages, including $198 million specifically for School Leader Recruitment and Support, and $82 billion for K-12 facility construction. Still, inclusion of these notable victories for schools is far from certain as lawmakers potentially seek to trim the overall price tag on the final legislation.

Effect positive change and advocate for principals across America by asking Congress to support these education investments in the budget resolution bill! With just a few clicks, you can send your message to lawmakers and make a difference in the principalship.”   - National Association of Elementary/Secondary School Principals (NAESP/NASSP)
