In recognition of the Month of the Military Child, April 2015, please join Dinwiddie County Public Schools for the 5th annual “Purple Up! For Military Kids” celebration where we encourage staff and the community to wear purple on Wednesday, April 15. This is a very visible way to show our support and thank military families and children for their strength and sacrifices. Purple symbolizes all branches of the military, as it is the combination of Army green, Marine red, and Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force blue.
In addition, Dinwiddie County School Board will recognize the children of all active military personnel who attend Dinwiddie County Public Schools. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015, at 4:00 PM.
Kindergarten students will be given a skills screening in June. This information will assist parents with preparing their child for a successful 2015-2016 Kindergarten year.
Please visit your child’s school on June 3 or June 4 to have him/her screened. Contact the school to schedule an appointment.
