Celebrating National Principals Month

Celebrating National Principals Month

National Principals MonthEach October, National Princpals Month recognizes the essential role that principals play in making a school great.

Principals are among the hardest working, yet often least recognized individuals in education. Principals set the academic tone for their schools, and it is their vision, dedication, and determination that provide the mobilizing force for achieving student success. Each October, NASSP, NAESP, and AFSA seek to honor these unsung heroes for their tireless efforts in pursuit of excellence in education.

National Principals Month is a widely recognized celebration of the principalship, marked by national and state resolutions supporting the event, as well as acknowledgements from U.S. Senators and Representatives, and top government officials. However, the most important National Principals Month celebrations are the ones that take place in schools and communities across the country.

Murphy’s Celtic Legacy – Irish Dance Reborn

Wednesday, April 3 at 10:30am
Recommended All Grades

Don’t blink, for this is no ordinary Irish Dance performance; it is a battle of styles, a clash of colors. The cast of Murphy’s Celtic Legacy gives an invigorating performance of traditional Irish Dance. Featuring dancers and musicians from Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and Celtic Woman, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy is the next generation Irish dance spectacular.

Created by Chris Hannon, former principal dancer for Lord of the Dance, Murphy’s Celtic Legacy features original choreography combining traditional Irish and Modern dance techniques presented with multimedia elements, song and live music.

The show’s soundtrack is composed by acclaimed Irish musicians John Elliott and Gerry Conlon and is performed by a 7 piece band. The performance centers on an original tale developed by Hannon drawn from Irish folklore – a tale of Kings and Queens, rebels and magic; epic battles between good and evil. It tells the story of the Murphy clan, who flee the corrupt tyrants of their native Eire in search of a better future.

No study guide available for this performance.

Palm Pointe Kindergarten Students Learn About Fire Safety

Palm Pointe Kindergarten Students Learn About Fire Safety

Palm Pointe Kindergarten students enjoyed an exciting learning opportunity this week when St. Lucie County Firefighters came to their school to teach them about fire safety.

October is fire safety month, and to celebrate this initiative, students had an opportunity to interact with our local firefighter heroes.  Students learned what to do in the event of a fire, how to safely exit their home, how and when to call 911, and the importance of coming up with a family plan during a fire emergency.  They were able to explore the firetruck and tools used by the firemen.

Thank you to the brave men and women who serve us everyday in our local St. Lucie County Fire Department.
