Superintendent Dr. David Fonseca said, “National Principals Month is a great opportunity to express our appreciation to principals for answering the call not only to teach, but also to lead and support others from the office of the principal. On behalf of everyone in our schools and all those that our schools serve, I extend our most sincere appreciation to our principals for all that they do as they continue to lead, inspire and support their students, teachers and staff, parents and community!”
On a related note, Toby Cone is the 2013-14 WCS Principal of the Year.
