Former U.S. Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger first designated April as the Month of the Military Child, acknowledging the significant role military-connected students play in our communities.  Today, district staff wore purple to show support and thanks to military children and families in our district. We respect and honor the sacrifices made to keep our country safe.

We “Purple Up” today because purple represents the joint service operations and is a combination of Army Green, Air Force Blue, Coast Guard Blue, Marine Red, and Navy Blue; it is the appropriate color to represent military children from all branches.  Today think of ways you can show your appreciation to service men and families…maybe you will “Purple Up” too!
