NATIONAL SCHOOL PUBLIC RELATIONS ASSOCIATION CELEBRATES PUBLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
NSPRA joins leading education groups in celebrating the strength—and potential—of our nation’s public schools and our students’ futures.
ROCKVILLE, MD. (Feb. 27, 2023) – This week, the National School Public Relations Association (NSPRA) joins other leading education associations around the country in celebrating Public Schools Week, a time to show the strength—and potential—of our nation’s public schools and our students’ futures. Led by the Learning First Alliance (LFA), Public Schools Week 2023 will be held Feb. 27-March 3.
In 2023, Public Schools Week is part of a larger campaign—#HerefortheKids. The #HerefortheKids campaign brings together families, educators and community members to shine a light on local public schools and share the stories of the positive things happening in classrooms and school buildings nationwide. The teaching and learning in our local K-12 public schools positively impacts students and families, the neighborhoods and communities they live in and our nation as a whole. With commitment, creativity and critical thinking, educators and school leaders continue to provide welcoming and engaging learning opportunities for our children.
As a member of the LFA, NSPRA invites our members and their school districts to help celebrate Public Schools Week 2023 as well as tune in and participate in the following events planned for educators and district leaders during the week:
