April is the Month of the Military Child

April is Month of the Military Child: This Thursday, April 14, is chosen as " Purple Up! For Military Kids" day. We are encouraging our students and staff of USD 251 to wear the color purple to show support and thank the military youth in our schools for their strength and sacrifices. Why purple? Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is a combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red, and Navy blue. Across the nation, people are being encouraged to show support for our military and veteran children and to thank them for their strength and sacrifices.
