I love School Library Month. It gives me an excuse to brag about - oh I mean, advocate for - school libraries. I'm in a small school district so I include my building administration, superintendent, and school board in my packet-of-goodies style campaign. Here's what they receive:
A letter about school library month and our school library in particular (This is last year's)
A little qr code to more resources
I've included two. The one I will send this year is about my state's libraries in particular. The one I sent last year was more general.

My building administration will also receive a thank you card and an infographic highlighting circulation, activities, collaborations, and outreach events we have put on this school year. For them only, I am including a short wishlist along with reasoning of what the library needs to continue progressing. The first items I will be requesting are an additional staff member and the reupholstering of our bench seating. The other item won't cost money (continued encouragement of teachers to collaborate with the library).
School Library Month is the perfect time for getting others on your team and taking stock. Look back. Look ahead. Aim. Fire!
