Month of the Military Child

Although it is celebrated throughout the month of April, the Commission selected Wednesday, April 20, 2022 as our “Purple Up!” day.  Please note that states, districts and schools may select a different date(s).

Please visit to download letter templates and resources  to promote your support. With the ongoing impact of COVID-19, many schools may be in non-traditional or remote learning, and we encourage you to be creative with your virtual events and celebrations.
