April is the Month of the Military Child.
The service of military children is easy to overlook. Let’s take a minute to slow down and appreciate what the life of a military child entails. The following are just a few of the challenges military children face: moving and starting over on an average of every 1-3 years, attending 6-9 different schools from kindergarten through 12th grade, and multiple deployments of a parent. Throughout all of this, military children are resilient and patriotic. They know first-hand what it feels like to be the new kid, so they are usually the first one to welcome a new student to school.
Military kids are a treasured resource and they sacrifice and serve in their own way. To honor their service, in 1986 Caspar Weinberger declared April as the Month of the Military Child. Schools, organizations and installations will be honoring and celebrating military children all over the world.
There are approximately four million military children; wherever you see a military presence there are undoubtedly children that are personally impacted. We would love for you to get involved and help us raise a cheer for military children on April 6th at Oakleaf Junior High by wearing PURPLE. Purple is the color that represents all branches of the military.
All paperwork is due by April 17th!
