Challenging season for military families
Kiera Gallagher,  M.Ed , is a teacher at Albritton Middle School at Fort Bragg and an Army spouse.
The summer is still in full blossom, yet just around the corner is the annual rite of “back to school,” a period that can be fraught with anxiety for children and parents alike, but none more so than U.S. service members and their school-age children.

North Carolina-based service members have some 125,270 dependents in tow, many of whom are school-age.

Back to school” can carry particular trepidation for military-connected children, because they move so frequently. Change and challenge are constants for military kids, especially when it comes to transitioning out of old schools and into new schools.

The second edition Compact Rules book is now available online !

Downloadable one pagers, guides and brochures are also available online for your meetings and events. You may also request publications online .
