Virginia School Principals Appreciation Week

On behalf of the Virginia Board of Education and the Department of Education, it is my pleasure to announce that Governor Timothy M. Kaine has signed a Certificate of Recognition declaring January 12-16, 2009, as Virginia Principals Appreciation Week. I hope that you and others throughout your community will join me in acknowledging the tireless efforts of our school principals across the Commonwealth. Our principals work diligently to help students and teachers excel, and their leadership and hard work are essential to the success of our schools. They deserve all the recognition and praise we can give them.
