CAPS Celebration

CAP Club celebrated the end of the 2022-2023 school year with two special events. The first was the annual trip to SDC. The students enjoyed a beautiful day riding rides, eating good food, and socializing with their friends. We had 28 students, 9 parents, and one A+ student attend. Second, on May 3rd CAP Club launched our Alpha II rockets we made several months ago. The launch was a success except for two parachutes lost in a tree. Lt. Colonel Lana Fletcher, Ken Bash, and Cadet Rhian Fletcher help with launch and safety. CAP Club launched about 25 rockets.

Thank You Stuco 2022-2023
