PURPLE UP! DAY - Honoring the Military Child

Purple Up! Day on April 15th recognizes some of the military’s most unsung heroes – their children. The day encourages everyone to wear purple representing all branches of the military and showing unity with each other.

All across the country and around the world, military children play a significant role in their schools, youth organizations, and communities. When we wear purple in their honor, we let them know we support them in all branches of the military – Army, Navy, Marine, Coast Guard, Air Force, and Space Force. Whether they are a part of the military family for a short while or their entire childhood, the military child deserves to know they have the support of their community.

WAYNE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT celebrates and honors all of our students who are military children.  Wear your purple attire on Thursday, April 15th to show your support!
