Project Military Kids
11 July 2020

Project Military Kids focuses on the military lifestyle while working on crafts and other fun projects.

This past weekend children learned how to understand what they are feeling, and how they can help themselves relax during stressful times, especially when a parent is deployed. Children were read a book, painted pottery, and completed a COVID-19 time capsule and story book.

The next Project Military Kids event is 19 September at the MCAS MCFTB Office, we hope to see you there!

To sign up for the next event visit:

School Meal Program
12 May 2018

As we all social distance, wear masks, and home school, the School Liaison Program (SLP) & Laurel Bay Schools Meal Program have been providing a free breakfast and lunch daily to all children ages 0 to 18.

This has been a terrific outreach in our community providing one hundred breakfasts and lunches daily. Children do not need to be Elliott or Bolden students to be eligible.

Kim Wiley, School Liaison Officer said, “Being a part of this has been very rewarding. It has been a wonderful opportunity to engage families and support our Marines and Sailors in a new and different way. I am always looking to ensure our military families are cared for.” When Laurel Bay Schools announced they were providing a meal program on Laurel Bay the SLP was thrilled to be able to expand the assistance to the families who live on Parris Island by working with other MCCS employees from Marine and Family Programs as well as cafeteria staff.

All meals are offered Tuesdays & Thursdays from 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. for the Laurel Bay site and Monday –Friday 11:00 a.m. -12:30 p.m. for the Parris Island site. Pick-up Locations: Bolden Elementary/Middle School at the parent drop-off point and MCRD Parris Island Youth Center, Bldg. 501. Lunch and breakfast portions are included at time of distribution. Meals will not be offered on May 25th (Memorial Day) and the Meal Program will conclude on June 4th.
