Military Families

Welcome Military Families to Northwest Rankin Elementary!

 

We are very excited to have you and your family at NWRE. We are here to support you and your child in enrolling. Supporting Military Families is important to our school for many reasons but most importantly, for our military students.  Personally, I have seen the impact that deployments can have on a loved one and the importance of community support.  I am aware of the military community here in Rankin County, and would love to be a resource for your family.  

 

Please contact me should you have any questions. 

 

Thank you, 

Mrs. Monk
