APRIL IS THE MONTH OF THE MILITARY CHILD

April is a time to recognize the important role military children play in the armed forces community. Sponsored by the Department of Defense Military Community and Family Policy, the Month of the Military Child is a time to applaud military families and their children for the daily sacrifices they make and the challenges they overcome. CMS is home to 235 military students making up 32% of our student body. To honor their unique contributions and sacrifices on behalf of our country, we would like to recognize and celebrate them this month.

April 6th: Military children make up a very special part of our nation’s population. To honor their unique contributions and sacrifices on behalf of our country, we will recognize and celebrate each student by placing their name on an individual leaf which will then be placed on the "Tree of Honor" located in the quad.

April 14 Spirit Day 1- Wear "Red, White, and Blue Day."

Apr 15 Spirit Day 2- "Purple Up! Wear Purple For Military Kids"

Our MFLC, Lisa, and CUSD Student Liaison Officer, Mindy, will pass out ribbons and stickers to all students during break, and after school they will be passing out "giveaways" to military students.

Why wear purple?

Wearing purple is a visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Air Force blue, Army green, Navy blue, Marine red, and Coast Guard blue all are thought to combine together as the color purple; representing all branches of the United States Military.
