The Illinois Principals Association (IPA) encourage all communities in Illinois to celebrate Principal Appreciation Day on Friday, October 25, 2019. This state-endorsed recognition was first approved by the Governor of Illinois in 1990 and is annually celebrated. The IPA also joins the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), and the American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA) to recognize October as National Principals Month.
District 123 is fortunate to have such a wonderful group of dedicated school principals. This is a great opportunity to recognize all of the incredible work they do each and every day for our school communities, said Dr. Paul Enderle, Superintendent
Mr John Wawczak (Covington) – Mrs. Anne Marie McGovern (Hannum) – Dr. Kathleen Spreitzer (Hometown) – Mr. David Creech (Kolmar) – Mrs. Candy Kramer (Sward) – Mr Sean McNichols (OLHMS) – Mrs. Amanda Bencik (OLHMS) – Mr. Donald Hantson (OLHMS)
Principal Appreciation Day provides learning communities an opportunity to publicly recognize the work, commitment and importance of principals, assistant principals, and deans throughout the state. The IPA invite all teachers, students, parents, and community members to perform some act of appreciation on Friday, October 25th to acknowledge the leadership of building administrators in Illinois’ public and private schools.
