Welcome to the Sparta Area School District!

April is Month of the Military Child and gives the nation the opportunity to recognize the character, strength and sacrifices of America's military children as well as the role they play in the armed forces community. There are about 1.2 million school-age children in the United States that are military dependents with parents in the armed forces. The majority of these students are estimated to attend public schools. Take time out of this month to tell a military child how much they enrich the lives of those around them, and the important role they play in the military community.

Military Kids are Great because we areā€¦

Proud-of the important jobs our parents do

Flexible-making the best of new situations

Friendly-making and being good friends

Well Rounded-with many experiences from many places

Smart-making good and safe decisions

Helpful-pitching in when our Family needs us

Thoughtful-helping other military kids feel at home

Important-helping our Families and community

Purple Up

We would like to take time during The Month of the Military Child to honor our students who have a military STAR hero.

STAR heroes are Someone To Always Remember

Join us in wearing purple on Tuesday, April 15, to celebrate our friends who have military STAR heroes.
