Each year, students, teachers and community members share messages of support for their school principals during Principal Appreciation Month. We also find a variety of ways to thank school leaders. The week has sometimes culminated in a big party thrown by The Fund, Chicago Public Schools and City Hall to celebrate and recognize school leaders’ hard work. See social media messages, photos and videos from past campaigns below.

Every October, school communities, city officials, and corporate leaders join together to lift up the great work of principals.
