The Tomah Journal: April is the Month of the Military Child.
To celebrate military children and recognize the challenges they face and sacrifices they have made, the Tomah Area School District and the Sparta Area School District co-sponsored a luncheon Thursday at Fort McCoy.
John Hendricks, SASD superintendent, said the luncheon is a way to show appreciation and understanding for families of military personnel.
“We just can’t do enough to recognize how special these students are,” he said. “This is just a little opportunity to do that … to hear from students, to understand them better. It’s an opportunity to meet parents and recognize the sacrifices that they make.”
