We know how hard principals work and how important their leadership is to the success of our schools. This fall, we’re kicking off a campaign to make sure everyone in Chicago knows it, too.

The theme of our campaign is #PrincipalPrideCHI, and our call-to-action is simple: Thank a Chicago principal.

The campaign will launch on October 16 – in conjunction with National Principal Appreciation Week – and extend through November 20. Throughout the campaign, we’re calling on the Chicago community to show their support for Chicago’s principals in one of three ways:

  1. Signing a digital “thank you” card to all of Chicago’s public school principals.
  2. Writing a social media message thanking a principal and using the hashtag #PrincipalPrideCHI.
  3. Submiting a selfie video thanking a principal.

Throughout the campaign, we’ll be featuring videos and social media messages on our website. At the end of the campaign, we’ll send a highlight reel and the thank you card to all of Chicago’s public school principals (district and charter!).

As we prepare to launch our campaign, we’ll be working with partners across the city to show our #PrincipalPrideCHI. If you want to learn how your organization can support the campaign, please complete this form.

Stay tuned for more!
