Partridge Celebrates Military Child Month

  • Students, teachers and staff at Partridge Elementary demonstrated their passion for purple and military dependents by wearing purple in support of April being the Month of the Military Child. The students also wrote about their favorite bases. Drawing a heart with Partridge Elementary in its center, this student wrote that Fort Leonard Wood is her favorite “...because I got to learn new things. I also got to meet new friends and people. When I got here, I went to a restaurant and I made friends with one of the waiters because she was very nice to me and my family.”  Another student wrote about a base in Germany: “Even though it was a long trip, Germany was an amazing experience. Traveling to castles, other countries and tasting different foods and drinks was amazing. Getting to see the other side of the world is a memory to cherish forever.”
