April is the "Month of the Military Child"
April has been designated as "Month of the Military Child" to encourage citizens to pay tribute to military children for their commitment, patience, courage, and unconditional support of their parents as they work to defend and protect our nation. Laurel Hill has many military families among its ranks. We are grateful for their service.
FCPS has established a special page on its website specifically for its military families. Visit http://www.fcps.edu/dss/ips/military/index.shtml for resources and other information for military families.
