|SUBJECT:||Month for Children|
The 1995 General Assembly through HJR 496 designated May as the Month for Children in Virginia. The purpose of this memorandum is to call attention to this designation and to encourage special activities and media coverage that focus positively on the contributions made by our children and youth. A copy of a proclamation signed by Governor Allen is enclosed for your reference. A Children and Youth Focus Task Force was recently formed to promote media coverage of children and youth and develop a three-year plan to create an awareness throughout the state of the contributions our young people continue to make. A list of the task force members and other information is also attached. Questions related to this effort may be directed to Dewey Oakley at (804) 225-2023. WCBJr/pg Attachment: This memo and its attachment will be sent to the superintendent's office.
