Purple for Military Kids Day

Purple for Military Kids Day

April 20

Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) recognizes all military-connected children in April during the Month of the Military Child. This yearly tradition is part of a national celebration to recognize military children for their resilience, strength, and sacrifices. 

April 20, 2022 is designated as Purple Up! For Military Kids Day. FCPS has over 13,500 military-connected youth as part of its student body. These children enrich the school community with their wide-ranging life experiences.

Show support for military children, Purple Up! on April 20. Wear purple as a visible way to show appreciation for military-connected youth. Why purple? Purple symbolizes all branches of the military as a combination of Army green, Marine red, along with Coast Guard, Air Force, Space Force and Navy blue.
