Happy National Principals Month

Dear Colleagues,

Happy National Principals Month! I'd like to take a moment to express my appreciation for the leadership of our school principals. Thank you to all our principals for everything they do, not only this month but throughout the year, to help the children of New York State grow and thrive. All month, we are recognizing principals on our social media channels (TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn). Follow along with us, and don't forget to thank your principal!


October is also New York State History Month, and the New York State Museum is working to promote the education and appreciation of New York State’s rich and complex history. In addition to hosting in-person events throughout October, the Museum has created a dedicated New York State History Month web page with many resources to explore, including the podcast “A New York Minute in History,” a special “This Day in NY History” feature, educator guides, a list of events happening statewide, and much more. I encourage you to explore all of the resources that the Museum has to offer and learn about the fascinating history of our state!
