Military Child Month
April is the month of the Military Child. This is to bring awareness to all of the children of military families for their strength and sacrifices they have made. To show your appreciation you can wear purple next Wednesday, April 30th. Purple signifies a combination of colors for each branch of the military (Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and navy blue). We have 127 military children enrolled in K-12 and 7 military families enrolled in our Parents as Teachers program. Take the time to tell them personally thank you!
