Purple Up! Today

April is the Month of the Military Child and TODAY is Purple Up! Day

All are invited to wear PURPLE today to show support for our military families and our military connected students at Willow Springs.

Every year we take the opportunity to recognize military-connected youth for their service and contribution to our community. Fairfax County Public Schools is proud to have over 14,000 military-connected youth as a part of our student body. We appreciate the varied life experiences they bring to our school community, and recognize their strength and resilience.

We hope to see you at the Fairfax Pyramid Art Show tonight at Fairfax High School.
