Honoring our military-connected children and their families
March 27th, 2016 by #cmovasmiles
The Children’s Museum of Virginia is proud to join Governor McAuliffe this April for the Month of the Military Child. April has been designated a special time to celebrate and honor our military-connected children and their families.
Frequent moves, family separations through deployments, and reintegration following deployments can make school-, home-, and community-life challenging for military children. Yet, even in such circumstances, these students continually demonstrate resilience and perseverance. Their contributions to our schools and communities also include unique and valuable perspectives on learning, friendship, and growing up.
While April has been designated as the Month of the Military Child, we’d like to encourage everyone to take time throughout the year to recognize the nation’s military servicemen and servicewomen, their families and their children.
