5 NATIONAL PRINCIPALS’ MONTH “It is the Principal who sets the stage for the growth and direction a school will take. The Principal is the face of the school who has the uncanny ability to create an environment that is conducive to learning. As I grew up, I always knew that I would become a Principal. There is not a more noble position, for I influence the future of this country in countless ways: students, teachers, parents, and the community. I truly make a difference.” -- Anonymous
