The Judson ISD Department of Special Programs team concluded as the anchor with “Purple UP”. Purple Up stretched throughout our nation, the Blue Star Families Literacy Initiative, JISD departments and campuses, Joint Based San Antonio military installation schools, KENS 5 TV, San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, UTSA, Texas A&M and our neighboring school districts with turning San Antonio purple in commemoration of “Month of the Military Child”.

April is designated as the Month of the Military Child, recognizing and honoring the commitment, contribution and sacrifices that military-connected students experience in their family life. Our military-connected students are faced with unique challenges like frequent moves or just being separated from one or both parents who are deployed for long periods of time. They move an average of 10 times while growing up and approximately 2 million have experienced parental deployment since 9/11. Military-connected kids deserve our respect that comes with that knowledge of the sacrifices that are made for the safety and freedoms we all enjoy.
