As part of the blog series celebrating National Principals Month, I asked principals to share some memorable quotes—those they share with others, those that are meaningful to them, and quotes from students or staff. I received an eclectic set of responses!
For National Principals Month, guest blogger Ballenger Creek Middle School Principal Jay Schill shares reflections about his work. This is the third in a series about National Principals Month.
North Frederick Elementary Principal Kim Seiss is today’s guest blogger, in celebration of National Principals Month. She writes from her perspective as the mom of a student who attends a school in the Catoctin feeder pattern. See how the community showed appreciation for their outstanding principals!
Please take the opportunity to share your appreciation with a principal this month.

Inspired by her perspective on building new relationships at a new school, I invited her to be a guest blogger. I am so glad that she agreed!
The Great Frederick Fair provides a magical opportunity for agricultural education. Wouldn’t it be fabulous to see the fair through the eyes of a child?
