Military Family Support at NTPS

  • Due to our current COVID -19 situation, we know many of you may have questions and concerns. The Military Support Team is here to provide you with the most up to date  information and are ready to support or assist you with your individual needs. 
    As we work to strengthen our partnership with JBLM, we welcome I'd like to introduce our Carmen Lopez, to the position of NTPS Military Liaison and Adrienne Perez to the position of NTPS Military Support. They are excited about facilitating outreach and advocacy between North Thurston Public Schools, Joint Base Lewis-McChord and the District’s military-connected families.

    Our long-term goal is to strengthen our connection with JBLM to expand and enhance the availability of military-sponsored resources for our students and families. We currently have an estimated 19% of military-connected youth in our district. The district obtains Federal Impact Aid dollars through surveys turned in by our families.

    Purple Up! For Military Kids! 

    April is recognized as the Month of the Military Child.  It is a time to honor the service, commitment and sacrifice of our military’s youngest heroes.  Students, staff and their families are encouraged to wear purple April 27 – May 1 to show support and thank military children for their strength and sacrifices. Purple demonstrates that all branches of the military are supported as it is the combined color of Air Force blue, Army green, Navy blue, Marine Corps red, and Coast Guard blue. 

    If you would like to send in a Purple Up photo, for us to share on our webpage, please email to
