April is the Month of the Military Child

  • Month of the Military ChildApril is recognized as the Month of the Military Child where we recognize the strength & sacrifices our military-connected students make by being a part of a military family.

    Why Purple? Purple demonstrates that all branches of the military are supported as it is the combined color of Army Green, Marine Red, and Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, & Space Force Blue.

    Take time this month to honor the service, commitment, and sacrifice of our NTPS students who are a part of military families.
