April is the month of the Military Child, providing an opportunity to recognize and honor the service of our youngest heroes, military children. Help us turn Aledo ISD PURPLE on April 15 as we Purple UP! for Military Kids! Wearing purple is a very visible way to show support and thank military youth for their strength and sacrifices. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red, Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force blue. Be creative...the goal is for military youth to see they have our thanks and support!
