"MCEC® invites you to join us in recognizing our resilient military-connected children this April during the Month of the Military Child (MOMC). Every year we take this time to celebrate these amazing children for their selflessness and sacrifice as they serve our country as part of a military family." (Source)
This year’s theme is Celebration. We encourage military-connected students in grades K-12 to provide their drawings, poetry, and or photography that celebrates their life as military-connected students.
Wear purple to celebrate military kids! Purple references the joint environment of the military, encompassing all service branches, Active Duty, Reserve, National Guard, and Veterans. Purple combines each branch’s colors into one: the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard all use shades of blue, the Army uses green, and the Marines use red. MCEC® celebrates Purple Up this year on April 14th.
