Fort Montgomery Elementary School Honors Military Families

April is "The Month of the Military Child".  It is a time dedicated to military children and the role they play in our communities.  This is a special time to applaud and celebrate the sacrifices and challenges military children have to endure as their families defend our nation.  

This year, the Fort Montgomery Elementary School (FMES) will honor these extra special members of our community in a few ways.

Spirit Days:

  • Wednesday, April 14th - Purple Up! - Wear purple!!
  • Wednesday, April 21st - Camo Day - show off that camouflage
  • Wednesday, April 28th - Service Logo Day - highlight a branch of our armed forces


FMES also plans to share a few read alouds via their Google classroom.  These videos are designed to be shown during Community Circle and will also include a question or prompt for students to discuss after viewing the videos.  There may also be a few "guest" speakers visiting classes via video!

"Wall of Honor":

FMES is also in the process of creating a "Wall of Honor" to celebrate and recognize their military families.  The display will be on a purple bulletin board outside the cafeteria for all to see.  

FMES' hope is that the culmination of all of their voices expressing gratitude to our military families will be loud enough for all to hear.  The FMES community is so appreciative of the sacrifices military children have made, as well as their families, and they look forward to honoring them this month!
