 Purple Up Day, Thursday, April 18

April, the Month of the Military Child, is set aside to recognize and honor the commitment, contributions and sacrifices military children and youth make to the nation through the strength they provide our soldiers and their families. On Thursday, April 18, GFPS is celebrating Purple Up Day.  Please wear purple as a way to thank, honor, and recognize the many contributions of our military students. Why purple? Purple 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.

Purple Up! for military kids
