Grants Help Military Students Make Transition

The junior high years can be difficult for any child. But for military children, there are some additional challenges with constant moves, deployments, changes in school requirements and other things that keep the academic environment from remaining stable.

Thanks to a grant from the Department of Defense, life for students from S.C. Lee and Copperas Cove Junior high schools just got a little easier. Select students participated in the Junior Student to Student training, a program for civilian and military-connected students designed to welcome new students to Copperas Cove Independent School District and support their transition to one of the two junior high campuses, said Maggie Velarde, S.C. Lee guidance counselor.
