When you come back from Winter Break on Monday Jan 5, 2015 we will suit up for PE! Then on Friday Jan 9, 2015 we will wear our cadet uniforms for PICTURE DAY!
Kearny Spring Leadership Camp will be held 27-30 March 2015 at Mataguay Scout Ranch. This is a fun event that will include camping in tents, bonfires, hiking, fist aide skills, CPR, and adventure training! Cadets that return for the second semester have priority of attendance. First semester cadets can apply now. If you currently do not have JROTC for second semester, contact your small school office to schedule JROTC. Remember we have 0 and 5th period available for cadets that cannot take JROTC periods 1-4. If you would like to attend Spring Leadership Camp, fill out the application and return to COL Swann by the 9th of January 2015!
The report time at Kearny High School for our competition is 0600 on Saturday morning. Please, please, please be on time! We need to get ready and have a couple practice runs before our bus pick at 0830. Male cadets, make sure your SHAVE Saturday morning before coming to Kearny. Female cadets, please come to Kearny with your hair already done per regulation. This will allow us maximum time to get our uniforms ready and to practice!
REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR RANK, NAMETAG, AND SHOES! MAKE SURE YOUR SHOES ARE CLEAN!
This is your Battalion Commander,
The San Pasqual Battlefield Reenactment is coming up on Sunday, December 7th. We will only be taking about fifty cadets so the requirements to attend the San Pasqual Reenactment is to have at least a 2.0, no non-suits, and be passing your ROTC class with a “B” or higher. You must sign up on the Monday after Thanksgiving break. You will find the sign-in sheet on the ROTC bulletin board and Tuesday Colonel Swann will announce who will be going.
