HANGING TOUGH TOGETHER

CADET STAFF HARD AT WORK!

The cadet staff, 9 seniors and 1 junior who plan and execute everything the corps does, have been meeting during the weeks via Zoom. They're working on plans for when your kids come back to school, learning real-life lessons about adjusting to ever-changing situations!

POSITIONS FOR 2020-21 & SCHEDULING

We know counselors are starting to reach out to juniors for next year's schedules. Juniors desiring an ROTC position for next year have submitted letters and we're making our way through those. We've had our staff conversations about the juniors and are working through what the right fits will be. We have some more work to do on this but anticipate in one to two weeks to be completed.


Once we lock those in we will communicate with your kids about it, and will do a very detailed spreadsheet that will go out to all the counselors so they know exactly which class to put each student in. Let us know if you have questions.

INSTRUCTOR GREETINGS!
