Each year, April is designated as the Month of the Military Child. In Madison City Schools, more than 20 percent of its students come from military connected families.
A special day, “Purple-Up Day,” is set aside in communities worldwide to honor the sacrifices made by military families. Purple is the official color of the military child. Combining Air Force-blue, Army-green, Navy-blue, Marine-red, and Coast Guard-blue, the color purple forms.
This year as we abide by our “stay at home” order due to the COVID-19 crisis, Madison City Schools district and school staff send a virtual “thank you” to our military-connected students by creating a picture collage reading:
We love our military-connected students! Celebrating April as the Month of the Military Child. Thank you for your service! #purpleup4militarykids #mcslearn
