April: Month of the Military Child - Purple Up! Day 2019

Posted on 04/08/2019

April marks the month of the Military child, a time to honor military children for their strength, the challenges they have overcome, and the sacrifices they have made along with their families.

The Cabot School District, the district with the most military-connected students, is dedicated to supporting our families. Approximately 1,000 military children are enrolled in the Cabot School District.

We appreciate the sacrifices our families make each and every day. The district is committed to serving students of our military heroes and supporting them both emotionally and academically. 

Seven of our schools were the first in the state to be designated Purple Star Schools by the Arkansas Department of Education for their commitment to supporting and serving military children and their families. All of our schools are expected to be named Purple Star Schools by the end of the year. 

  

The district has two dedicated Military Liaisons, Director of Student Services Michael Byrd and Director of Counseling Terena Woodruff, to provide any necessary support for our military families. Our school counselors also serve as point of contact for our military families. They have been trained to specifically assist families in any situation military students may face including, constant relocation, enrollment, eligibility, graduation requirements, to dealing with a deployed parent.  

Throughout the month of April, our schools will be celebrating military children and their families, this includes participating in Purple Up! Day. The Arkansas Department of Education has designated this Thursday, April 11th, as Purple Up! Day, and is encouraging everyone to wear purple to show support for military families.

Purple is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, a combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue.  We hope everyone will take this opportunity to appreciate and celebrate these young heroes and make it possible for military kids to visually witness the support of their community.

Many of our schools will be participating in Purple Up! Day on April 11th, as well as other dates throughout the month of April. Please be sure to check your school’s newsletter and social media accounts to know which day your child is encouraged to wear purple.

We hope everyone will take this opportunity to appreciate and celebrate these young heroes and make it possible for military kids to visually witness the support of their community..
