Wear Your Purple on Thursday, April 25th, in support of HCS Military Kids!

Purple Up
South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has proclaimed April as the Month of the Military Child or “Purple Up! For Military Kids.” Across our nation, states and school districts will celebrate the important role of military children, while their service member parents serve our country, through special events and wearing the color purple. Purple was chosen because it incorporates the colors of all branches of the military — Air Force blue, Army green, Navy blue, Marine red and Coast Guard blue.

Please join us on April 25th to “Purple Up!” and thank our military children for their strength and sacrifice– they deserve our support!
