April: Month of the Military Child

This is a portion of the weekly Superintendent’s Update by Cliff Chuang mailed to Bedford Public School community on Friday, March 29. Please find this week’s full issue of Superintendent’s Update and back issues at bedfordps.org.

April is the Month of the Military Child, which celebrates and honors the resilience, sacrifices, and unique experiences of children in military families. These children navigate a lifestyle marked by frequent relocations, separations from loved ones due to deployments, and the inherent challenges of having a parent in military service. Despite these obstacles, military children exhibit remarkable strength, adaptability, and courage. They often shoulder responsibilities beyond their years, providing support to their families and peers while embodying the spirit of patriotism and service.

The Month of the Military Child serves as a reminder of the importance of fostering a culture of inclusivity and support within educational institutions, ensuring that all students, regardless of their background, feel empowered to thrive academically and personally.

Bedford High School the school boasts a community of 94 military-connected students. We will honor our military connected students with a breakfast on Friday, April 12th in the library. Bedford High School will proudly wear purple on that day as a symbolic gesture of support and recognition for our military-connected students.

In order to support this event we are selling t-shirts. Please see the link for more information: BPS Military Child T-Shirt Fundraiser. Please e-mail Brian DeChellis ([email protected]) with questions.
