October is National Principals Month, and the Magnolia School District recognizes the essential role that principals and their assistants play in making a school great.

The Magnolia School Board said in a statement that principals are among the hardest working, yet often least recognized individuals in education.

“Their leadership and pursuit of success for students helps guide and support their schools every day. With the challenges that COVID-19 presented, our principals came through when it mattered most.

“Our principals and assistants set the academic tone for their schools, and it is their vision, dedication, and determination that provide the rallying force for achieving student success.

“The Magnolia School District recognizes that our principals love what they do and enjoy the many opportunities to share in the learning journeys of the children in their schools. National Principals Month is our way of honoring their dedication and

thanking them for all their efforts in pursuit of excellence in education,” the statement said.
