Students building something using a RigamajigMany kids experience intense emotional impact when a parent is deployed or has returned home from military service. Play is crucial for kids to relieve toxic stress, restore normalcy and stay active and healthy.  Stoney Point Elementary School hosted an event to unveil its new Rigamajig creative play tool on April 24, 2017. The Rigamajig empowers kids to use their own imagination to build a play space of their dreams, using a collection of wooden planks, wheels, and pulleys that allow kids to build and rebuild play structures with their imaginations. This type of play can be a solution for military families to help kids have fun, healthy and positive experiences together.

Ja'Brilyn C. , a junior at Westover High, is holding his certificate honoring him as a student with Amazing Acts of CharacterThe Amazing Acts of Character Recognition Program celebrates Cumberland County Schools’ students who meritoriously display an act of good character that goes above and beyond expected pleasant behavior.  Beginning January 2017, each month, all nominees receive a certificate recognizing their act by the Counselor Coordinator.  In addition, a multidisciplinary Central Services Committee may recommend an elementary, middle and/or high school winner to the School Board, and the students are invited to attend the Board of Education meeting.

This month there was one student who was introduced to the board members and received a trophy.  

The March 2017 honoree is as follows:

Ja’Brilyn C., a junior at Westover High School (WOHS) – According to WOHS’ Lead Success/Instructional Coach Brenda Minor, this 16-year-old “possesses a compassionate mind and an unpretentious heart each morning before coming to school.” Apparently, Ja’Brilyn walks his little brother and several elementary school children to their bus stop before school. “Ja’Brilyn supervises and ensures their safety as he walks all of them to the school bus stop,” said Minor. “He stands there with them until the bus arrives and the children safely board the school bus. Once the bus pulls off, Ja’Brilyn gets into his car and drives himself to Westover High School.” Minor said the school is proud of the fact that neighborhood parents trust Ja’Brilyn to walk with, watch, and make sure their young children board the school bus every day.

Keep Calm and Purple Up! for Military KidsSince 1986, April has been designated as the Month of the Military Child.  The Month of the Military Child is a month-long celebration to honor the sacrifices made by our military-connected students as they selflessly support their parent(s) who are, or were, in the military.  Cumberland County is rich with the tradition of military service and every one of the Cumberland County Schools has military-connected students. 

The school day closest to April 15 is designated as Purple Up Day. Everyone is encouraged to wear purple to celebrate the military child. Purple is the designated color because it is the color that symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Coast Guard blue, Air Force blue, Marine red and Navy blue. Cumberland County Schools will be celebrating PurpleUp Day on April 13.
