Transition Planning for Military Families:

At our school, we understand that military families often face unique challenges related to transitions. That's why we offer comprehensive transition planning tailored to the needs of military children and their families.

Our Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLAC) plays a crucial role in supporting military students. The MFLAC counselor regularly checks in on students to provide guidance and emotional support, helping them navigate the ups and downs of military life.

Additionally, we host Summer Time Informational Student and Family Gatherings to provide military families with essential information, resources, and a welcoming environment to connect with others facing similar experiences.

Our dedicated Military Point of Contact, Matt Teplicek, and Lori Cowan in the Guidance Department, are always available to assist military families. You can reach them at 850-767-4400.

Academic Planning for Military Families:

Academic planning for military families is a priority for us. During the summer, we offer one-on-one meetings with our Military Access Points Partner in the School (MAPPS) Coordinator and School Counselor to discuss academic schedules, ensuring a smooth transition for incoming military students.

These meetings help tailor academic planning to the unique needs and goals of military students, ensuring they receive the necessary support and resources to succeed in their educational journey.

Resources and Educational Opportunities for Military Children:

We believe in providing military children with a well-rounded educational experience. Our students have opportunities to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities, including Drama, Band, Choir, Athletics, and various clubs. These activities not only foster personal growth but also help military students connect with peers who share similar interests, creating a sense of belonging and community.

Student-Led Transition Team (S2S Club):

Our Student-to-Student (S2S) Club plays a vital role in helping military students transition to Mosley. This student-led team offers guided tours of the school, introduces new students to their teachers, and provides a supportive network to ensure a smooth integration into our school community.

S2S Club members are enthusiastic about welcoming their fellow military peers and helping them adapt to their new academic environment.

Support for Military ESE Children:

We understand that military children with exceptional needs require specific support. For these students, we offer personalized assistance, which includes meetings with our ESE Resource teacher to review Individualized Education Plans (IEP).

Our Learning Resource Center is a valuable resource for academic support, ensuring that military ESE children receive the specialized education they require.

Military Recognition Events:

Our school is committed to recognizing and honoring our military families. We have planned events like "Purple Up Day" and special ceremonies to honor both active duty and retired military parents.

These events serve as a token of our appreciation for the sacrifices military families make and provide a platform for our school community to express their gratitude.

Access to Mental Health Services:

We understand that the well-being of military children is a top priority. To support their mental health, students have access to TRIAD Counselors, who are available to provide counseling and emotional support.

Our goal is to ensure that every military child on our campus has the resources they need to maintain their mental and emotional well-being. In summary, our school is deeply committed to providing military children and their families with the support they require to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We aim to make their educational journey as smooth as possible and express our gratitude for their service through various recognition events and support services.
