The GA Department of Education celebrates April as the Month of the Military Child. This recognition honors the strength and sacrifices of military children. "Being part of a military family is a lifestyle full of transition and sacrifice and one that we do not take for granted, said State School Superintendent Richard Woods."
On Wednesday, April 10th, State School Superintendent Richard Woods suggests that each school district have their faculty, staff, and students wear purple to honor and show support for the children of military families in Georgia's public schools. To support children of military families in Georgia, please consider wearing purple on April 10th.
