Schools in the Welcoming Practices consortium used a variety of ways to honor military-connected students in April, the official Month of the Military Child.
At Wolf Canyon Elementary in the Chula Vista Elementary School District, military children created stars to pin up on the school’s Wall of Heroes.
Military children and families also turned out April 25th for the Salute to Service Fair in Tuna Harbor Park near the U.S.S. Midway in San Diego. The Welcoming Practices team had a resource booth available and military children had an opportunity to win books.
The event, which also featured a traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, was held to honor military members, veterans and their family members. The San Diego Military Family Collaborative also honored a military child during an appreciation ceremony.
