Together we make a profound difference

April Is Public Schools Month

In 1920, as California's public schools struggled to survive teacher shortages, California Masons led a community response: The fraternity proclaimed Public Schools Week, rallying communities in support of schools and raising needed funds to improve the system. Today, we continue that tradition with Public Schools Month. During the month of April, lodges throughout California conduct special recognitions in support of public schools.

Public Schools Month Kick-Off Events

California Masons' public school support is led by our Public Schools Advisory Councils - groups of Masonic leaders who collaborate with school districts, community leaders, and guidance counselors to provide targeted, local support. Each April, they organize celebrations to promote awareness of the importance of public education.
