Being a principal in an urban school district is one of the toughest and most important jobs there is. A principal is a strategic planner, staff motivator, curriculum developer, business manager, and the caring, trusted adult students turn to day after day– all rolled into one.
Spend a day with a principal and I guarantee you will understand how much respect, support, and thanks our City Schools principals deserve every day of the year.
That is why all of us at the Fund are so excited to be joining with Baltimore City Public Schools and over 40 community businesses and partners to recognize and celebrate our City Schools’ principals at the first annual Heart of the School Awards on May 23rd at the beautiful Hippodrome Theater. The evening will include special guests along with the presentation of the Inaugural Heart of the School Awards, immediately followed by food, drink and celebration.
Proceeds from the event will help establish a new Principal Support Fund that will provide grants to a wide variety of principal-driven projects. Principals need and deserve our support throughout the school year, and this new grant program is one way that we can help principals jump start innovative ideas that benefit students and schools across our city.
Please join the Heart of the Schools Awards celebration on May 23rd and help us show principals how much their efforts and commitment are valued by our community.
