I'll never forget how to spell principal thanks to the little "my principal is my PAL" trick I learned in grade school. As I've gotten older I've learned a little bit more about what principals actually do (they do not, in fact, live at school and sleep in the school closet). Principals are truly responsible for being a PAL to everyone – teachers, staff, parents, students, board members, and community members!
School Principal's Day is celebrated on May 1 this year. So take a moment to tell your principal how much you appreciate all that he or she does on a daily basis. Send a free ePraise card or hand-write a note of thanks; include a gift card to the local bookstore or coffee shop, or decorate their office while they're out to lunch.
And while you're on a thanks and appreciation roll, remember that Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up May 4-10! Shop now for the best selection of teacher appreciation gifts!
As a team member since 2005, Falon has worn just about every hat the 'ville has to offer. She's seen both sides of working life — as an employee and as a manager — so if it sounds like she knows what she's talking about, we're pretty sure that's why. When she's not juggling between the IDville and Baudville brands, she's been known to whip up a mean diorama - just like that!
