It’s annual Principal Appreciation Week, and Friday, October 26 is Principal Appreciation Day across Illinois.
Here in Lake Bluff, I hope you'll join me in thanking Mr. Nate Blackmer, Mrs. Margaret St. Claire, Mrs. Kellie Bae and Ms. Tracy Roehrick for their remarkable vision, dedication and determination in working to achieve Excellence in Education, Enthusiasm for Life, Every Student, Every Day.
The quality of a school’s learning environment and the ability of a school to do what is best for its students comes as a direct result of the leadership provided by the school's Principal and leadership team. Leadership like theirs is essential to effectively educate students and to provide the resources and support that our children need to thrive in the 21st Century.
The Board of Education and I are so proud of, and so thankful for, the work our principals are doing every day on behalf of the children of Lake Bluff, and their ongoing commitment to our students, staff, and community.
