March is a very exciting month for a lot of us. The weather starts to turn, we’re closer to spring, and of course, it’s my birthday month as well!

But beyond that, there is a lot to celebrate and raise awareness for in March.

I’ve organized a list of some of the events you should circle on your calendar.

Music in Our Schools Month. As education budgets get slashed because of the tough economy, school music programs are increasingly endangered. The purpose of Music in Our Schools Month is to raise awareness of the importance of music education for all children, and to remind citizens that school is a prime location for children to have access to music.

Small Press Month. A nationwide celebration of the books brought to you by independent publishers, Small Press Month raises awareness about the need for broader venues of literary expression.

Social Work Month. â€śSocial Work Matters” is the theme of Social Work Month 2012, sponsored by the National Associations of Social Workers. A key message for this year’s celebration is that social workers are the safety net in a civil society, contributing to the community’s health, mental health, aging, schools, veterans services, community agencies, local politics and more.

American Red Cross Month. Every year, the presi­dent proclaims March “American Red Cross Month” to encourage citizens to volunteer and participate in the important work this valuable organization performs in time of war and natural disaster.

National Procrastination Week, March 4-10. The Procrastinators’ Club of America (Bryn Athyn, Pa.) marks this as a week to promote the benefits of putting off until tomorrow everything that needn’t be done today.

Girl Scout Week, March 11-17. Celebrated every year during the week of March 12, when Juliette Gordon Low officially registered the organization’s first 18 girl members in 1912 in Savannah, Ga.

Brain Awareness Week, March 12-18. A global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. Events may include open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; displays at libraries and community centers; classroom workshops; and more.

Root Canal Awareness Week, March 25-31. A root canal may sound painful, but not getting one when needed could be worse. Root Canal Awareness Week seeks to raise awareness of the role of endodontists—root canal specialists who bring high-quality care, compassion, and comfort to their patients, and who deserve recognition for their service and commitment.

International Women’s Day, March 8. Thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements.

Pi Day, March 14. It’s 3-14. Get it? Pi is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter, an irratio­nal number whose decimal representation never ends, although it begins with 3.14159 . . .

St. Patrick’s Day, March 17. Break out the green, read some James Joyce, and try to catch a leprechaun. For more on leprechauns, see page 15.

National Puppy Day, March 23. Adopt a puppy, donate toys or blankets to your local animal shelter, or buy your own puppy a new toy.
