October is National Principals Month

Let’s Celebrate our Administrators!

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

October is National Principals Month! Throughout the month we honor the hard work and dedication of our principals. This is your opportunity to say “thank you” to our principals and to share with the community all the great things that principals do. The key to student success is a great school and the key to a great school is a great principal.

I would like to thank our principals, assistant principals, and all our HPS administrators for their leadership, for their passion for education, and for their commitment to our beautiful and capable students.

I also want to acknowledge the work they have done in support of our District Model for Excellence plan. Their work in advancing our Teaching & Learning goals is benefiting all our students. We also thank them for advancing our School Culture & Climate goals by ensuring that ALL students feel safe and valued at school and for truly supporting the whole student.

We recognize the lasting contributions our administrators make to our lives, the lives of our students, families, and the ways they benefit our entire community. On behalf of everyone in the Hartford Public Schools community, we thank our principals for their work, their heart, and their strength.


Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez, Superintendent
