SHS School Military-Connected Student Liaison
For more than 50 years, the National Military Family Association (NMFA) has been on a mission to stand up for, support, and enhance the quality of life for every military family through bold advocacy, innovative programming, and dynamic and responsive solutions.
With summer fast approaching, we always get questions regarding what activities are available for our military connected children. Operation Purple, through the National Military Association, has some wonderful FREE options for our military families. Please share with families and staff as you deem appropriate within your school as the Purple Star POC. This would be great information to share in a newsletter for military families.

Operation Purple® Camp offers military kids a week of camp where they connect with other kids, just like them.
Children from all uniformed services, including National Guard, Reserve, Space Force, and the Commissioned Corps of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and United States Public Health Service may apply.
Other locations, times and age groups are available.

I just signed on to be the Military Student liaison.
I am looking forward to starting the group back up and working with military families.
