There has been a change in plans.
If you are wishing to run for Royal Court at Cadet Ball this year, we would like to receive all essays by Tuesday, March 1, no later than 4:30 PM. They will still be sent to email@example.com, and all the formatting and rules from the previous post still apply.
On Saturday, February 20, our varsity archery team attended a brigade-wide archery competition. The competition was held at Lincoln High School, and the other schools in attendance were Madison High, Crawford High, San Diego High, and Lincoln High. After all three flights, parents and peers of shooters were allowed to take a few shots with the guidance of the archers. After the parents and peers were allowed to shoot, the final scores were tallied and the winning individuals and schools were announced. Third place individual went to our own Mikaila Lane, Second place to our Asia Dunbar, and First to our Lily Bell! Our archery team as a whole also placed first! We are very proud of our archers for doing their best Saturday, and look forward to seeing how they improve in the future.
Hello everyone!! As you may know, Cadet Ball is coming up this March! Make sure to purchase your cadet ball ticket.

It must be formatted as the following:
On February 5, 2016, a few cadets from our battalion attended a lunchtime event at Taft Middle School. At this event, Anthony Perez and Jose Ortega performed a two-man armed drill performance for the kids. Accompanied by Asia Dunbar, Jake Taylor, and Haley Williams, the cadets there spoke with many student about JROTC, how it has benefited us, how it could benefit them, and all the fun activities that are JROTC exclusive, such as archery. Asia Dunbar brought her bow to show off, and many kids were allowed to hold the rifles. Anthony Perez also did small encore performances for small groups of the kids in the quad! We had lots of fun, and we made some friends with incoming freshmen, and hopefully incoming cadets!

Welcome to Semester 2!
On January 30, 2016, our Armed Drill Team (ADT) and Color Guard competed at Orange Glen. Here, our 9-man performed basic drill & ceremony and a routine our ADT Commander and Battalion Commander, Anthony Perez, choreographed himself. Our 4-man also performed a routine of their own, and placed third! Our color Guard also did a fantastic job, as well as our 9-man. We are all very proud of our cadets for doing their best and putting forth effort to make our participation the Saturday's competition possible, and we can't wait to see how great we do next year!
