In addition to various board games set up in the auditorium, our Student Military Ambassadors have some fun activities planned! Dinner will be provided!
Ongoing throughout the month of April- have your student(s) bring in a family picture (preferably with the service member in uniform) to display on our bulletin board in the auditorium. Pictures should be brought to class, where students will have a chance to share them, along with a few thoughts/facts about being a military child. Then they will be hung on our wall of pride for all to see.
