April is the Month of the Military Child

4/2/2018

Approximately 34,000 Ohio students are members of military families. Ohio joins a nationwide effort in April to recognize kids in military families and thank these families for the sacrifices they make.
 
Frequent moves and family separations brought about by deployments, as well as reintegration issues, can present special challenges for these students. Yet, because of their resilience and ability to deal with life-changing events, military children can be an inspiration and a source of pride for our communities, schools and nation. Districts may want to consider how they can join in the national Month of the Military Child in April to recognize kids in military families and thank those families for the sacrifices they make. Learn more about Ohio’s supports to military families.
