Thank You


Dear Principals,  

In recognition of National Principals Month, I’d like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for the enormous amount of work, dedication, and ingenuity you’ve displayed in navigating the ongoing challenges in K-12 public education. 
Thanks to your countless hours of hard work, we’ve been able to bring most of our students back to school as safely as possible. I know the pandemic has challenged you on many levels, but you have risen to that challenge in ways that I hope our communities will appreciate. Our children are lucky to have you, and so are the rest of us. 

As you continue leading our schools, on the front lines of each challenge facing us today, please know that you are respected, appreciated, and recognized. You and your building staff are all heroes in my eyes.  

Gratefully yours, 

Tim Garchow
Executive Director
Washington State School Directors' Association
