I had the honor of attending a gathering at the State House this afternoon focusing on supporting military families. Staying Strong is a remarkable resource created to help children and families dealing with the struggles of deployment and the other unique challenges of being a military family. In addition to the Staying Strong initiative, representatives from the Home Base Program also presented the many resources that this program makes available to our families who serve.
As a district we are in the process of asking which of our students have a military connection. This information will better help us to meet their individual needs and to support their families.
