April 13, 2021Governor Mike Parson issued a statewide proclamation last month declaring April as the Month of the Military Child. The proclamation pays tribute to military children across the State for their commitment and sacrifice as they support military service members in their families. In recognition of these children, businesses across the State are asked to hang purple ribbons at their entrances or in windows, and Missourians are encouraged to wear purple this Thursday, which has been designated “Purple Up Day,” the color that represents all branches of the military. The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education will soon be launching the State’s Purple Star School Program to spotlight schools that are committed to going above and beyond to welcome, embrace and support military children across the State.
