Month of the Military Child

Friday, April 5, 2019 8:30 AM - 9:15 AM

We hope you'll be able to join us for this special event in the lower school auditorium to honor our military-connected students and their families.

On this day, we ask that students, faculty and parents wear purple—the color that symbolizes all branches of the military—to thank military children for their strength and sacrifices.

Distinguished guests include:

  • Dan Dunham, military student and family specialist for the Virginia Department of Education
  • Dr. Jill Gaitens, director Central and Coastal Virginia (Military Child Education Coalition)
  • Christina Escalante, school liaison officer (Naval Station Norfolk)
  • Tiffany Johnson, school liaison officer (Naval Support Activity, Hampton Roads)
  • Karen Phillips, school liaison officer (Joint Expeditionary Base, Little Creek-Fort Story
  • Terrilyn Williams, school liaison officer (Norfolk Naval Shipyard)
  • Kelly Beck, family resource specialist (United States Coast Guard Base Portsmouth)

Along with honoring our military-connected families, we also will be celebrating the school's recent achievement of being the ONLY independent school in Hampton Roads to be awarded the Purple Star Designation by the Virginia Department of Education!
