5 Things: May/June 2020

The work of a principal is never done. You do it all, and you love it. But even principals require support. We want to keep you in the know about how your Association is serving you while you serve kids. Here are five things you need to know about:

1. Support your teachers.

What could your school do with $500? NAESP and partner DonorsChoose are giving away two $500 DonorsChoose gift cards every month to fund school projects. Help your teachers raise money for things like area rugs for reading time, flexible seating options, laptops, and more. Learn more

2. Improving early ed.

NAESP is proud to have been part of the Power to the Profession Task Force, a three-year effort that culminated in the release of a set of recommendations to ensure that all children have the opportunity to benefit from high-quality early childhood education delivered by an effective, diverse, well-prepared, and well-compensated workforce. Learn more

3. School Meals Champion?

No Kid Hungry is celebrating principals who help to ensure their students have access to healthy food. The top 25 School Meals Champions will get a $200 gift card for their school.

4. Take your pick.

No matter your stage of career—veteran, early career, or assistant principal—we’ve got preconference sessions for you ahead of the NAESP Pre-K–8 Principals Conference in Louisville, Kentucky. Learn best practices in social-emotional learning, how to build culture and grow leaders, or ways to prepare yourself for future school leadership.
