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.
