HMS CRCT Pep Rally & Military Child Celebration

Huntington Middle School will hold a school assembly on April 9, 2012, at 7:40 a.m. for a CRCT Pep Rally to motivate students to perform at their best on the standardized tests.   In recognition of “Month of the Military Child,” military-affiliated students will be recognized during the assembly.  Chief Master Sgt. Patrick Bowen,Robins Air Force Base installation command chief, will speak and present the dog tags.

 

The dog tags read, “TEAM ROBINS.  Families Serve Too.  Thank you for your service.  Robins AFB GA.”  Sponsored by Georgia 4-H and Operation Military Kids, military students across Houston County will be given a dog tag in April as a token of appreciation for their service. 

 

On April 13, Huntington will also participate in “Purple Up! For Military Kids.”  The entire Huntington family will be asked to wear purple to honor the military child.  Military students are also encouraged to invite their parents to participate in “Pledge at the Pole” at 7:40 a.m., to say the Pledge of Allegiance together, and to eat lunch with them at school. 

 

April has been recognized globally as “Month of the Military Child” since 1986 to uplift children of military families.  Youth are recognized for the sacrifices they make as a result of having a parent in the Armed Forces.  Robins AFB and the Houston County Board of Education are partnering to celebrate military students. Dr. Robin Hines and Col. David Southerland will formally recognize this month during the April 10, 2012, Board meeting by signing a proclamation and recognizing military youth in attendance.

 

Huntington Middle School is located at 206 Wellborn Road in Warner Robins.  Principal Dr. Gwendolyn Taylor may be contacted at 478-542-2240.  For more information about Month of the Military Child, please contact Lesley Darley, Robins AFB School Liaison Officer, at 478-327-7692 or Lesley.Darley@robins.af.mil.
