We are celebrating national school principals’ day tomorrow, Saturday, May 1. This evening we will be publishing articles about school leaders, and we hope you will post a photo of your favorite principal on Twitter or Facebook to help us say thank you. To our school leaders, we see your leadership and public service, and especially this year, we honor your commitment to our students, our state, and our future.
