Military Family Resources

The Little Miami Local School district appreciates and values the military families who live in our community. As a district, we understand that military youth go through unique circumstances and we want our community to know that we are here to help. The staff in our schools have experience in assisting military youth and their families. This page is designed to provide you with easy access links to a few of the resources. Please contact your school counselor or Charles Hartman, School Resource Coordinator, for additional support. 

The Little Miami Local School District also celebrates our military families throughout the district in various ways, including:

  • Patriot Night at a high school football game
  • Patriot Week across the district
  • Veterans Day events held throughout the district
  • Displays and recognition of veterans at many schools
  • Fundraising and service projects to support our troops

Purple Star Designation

All school buildings within the Little Miami Local School District are recognized for their commitment to serving students and families connected to the United States armed forces.

Among the requirements a school must meet to receive the Purple Star Award are designating a liaison between military-connected students and their families and the school, and making certain the liaison informs teachers of the military-connected students in their classrooms and the special considerations military families and students should receive.

Little Miami’s application included information about Little Miami High School’s unique veterans Wall of Honor, annual elementary school observances of Veteran’s Day and other military-focused activities and services around the district.

“Ohio’s military members and their families embody the ideals of service, sacrifice, and community. But they can’t do their jobs alone. The Purple Star Schools awarded today recognize the sacrifices military members and their loved ones make. These school communities have made a commitment to support them inside and outside the classroom,” said Ohio Governor Mike DeWine. “Purple Star Schools are shining examples of Ohioans working together, encouraging one another, caring for one another and, ultimately, creating a brighter future for our state.”

The Purple Star designation is a 3-year designation.
