    From Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC):


    MILITARY PARENTS: April is the Month of the military child. If you would like to thank your child and recognize the sacrifices they make in support of your service, we are asking you record a short video message that will be played in their classroom. A sample message is as follows:

    "My name is rank, last name, and I'd like to give a "shout out" to my daughter _______ . ___________, I love you and I'd like to thank you for all you do, so that I can keep our country safe." (You do not have to use this template, this is just a basic format.)

    Please send any recordings to my email at dawn.wright@onslow.k12.nc.us and identify the teacher and student . The deadline for the recordings are March 31, 2021.

    Thank you for your support!

    If you have any questions regarding the Military Family Life Counseling program, please feel free to contact me at (910) 459-1338.
