MHNGS’ School-MFLCs at Pensacola NAS, Florida are doing some outstanding work with Elementary and High School kids. Throughout February, our Elementary School MFLC has been reading biweekly to kids in her 1st and 2nd grade footprint about love and then together, they work on an activity to bring the subject to life. Valentine week, the focus was on loving themselves for all the special qualities about each individual and then they built the featured board together titled: “I love myself because I’m Me.” At the same location, the work our High School MFLC is doing is just as powerful: #Love Shouldn’t Hurt. The continuation of this message throughout a child’s life fosters a sense of self-love and confidence and can make a real difference as they grow.

Click on the following link for access to Month of the Military Child resources including printable posters, stickers and tons of ways to celebrate the military child:
Rachael Vaphides, School MFLC for Naval Base San Diego in California worked with the children at her school to create this beautiful representation of military children. The children traced their hands and then used stickers to represent deployments, currently deployed parents and the number of different schools they have attended. They decided how it would be displayed (by grade level) and counted all the stickers to give us an accurate portrayal of how these children’s lives have been impacted by deployment.
