Purple Star-Information for Military Connected Families


Welcome to our page dedicated to our Purple Star Families

At BWE we are committed to seeking out our military connected families and assisting those families as needed. Mrs. Lesley Cannell, Mrs. Mary Wolf, Mrs. Beth Zirillo, and Mrs. Melanie Gathers are our building contacts. Should an immediate family member currently be serving in the military, please let us know. You can connect with any of our building contacts via email or by calling Big Walnut Elementary at (740) 965-3902. We have several events each year to bring our military connected families together.  Please check this website and weekly newsletters for additional information on those events.
