Come to the Plano Christmas Parade!

Come join the Plano community as we celebrate the Holiday Season and cheer for our cadets as they march in the 43rd Annual Plano Lions Christmas Parade THIS SATURDAY. Cadets need to arrive at Plano West Senior High at 8:00 a.m. (See schedule below). Click on this link to see the JROTC calendar for more details or read the Plano Star Courier's article.

As you may already be aware, attendance counts as a grade. If your cadet is already committed to another school function, please let Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Mike Mestan know by emailing him mike.mestan@pisd.edu or call him at (469) 752-9782.

Parents, hope to see you there!

From the Club President

Thank you to all that came out last Tuesday to discuss the JRTOC program. If you were unable to attend, minutes have been posted on the JROTC.club website. If you do not have access to the website, please email support@JROTC.club for assistance. If you have not already paid your dues, we would greatly appreciate the support.

Our next general meeting, open to all parents and cadets, will be January 12, 2016 from 6-7 p.m. in JROTC Classroom #A2078 on the second floor. We hope you can make it! As always, we start promptly at 6:00 and out of respect for everyone's time wrap it up at 7:00 sharp. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 214-250-1625.

We are planning a Back to School event in January to welcome everyone back and to re-connect with all the parents. We will be sending out an Evite when all details are final. Rumor has it one of our parents will be hosting in her house... woohoo! It will be nice to get a clear picture of what the spring semester holds and to see everyone's smiling faces again.

Merry Christmas and look forward to seeing you soon!
