On Tuesday, 1 May at 3:00 pm, four of our finest cadets will compete for the prestigious honor of Cadet of the Year. The candidates are Cadets Vaxter, Lee, Atkens and Gantt. We look forward to the spirited competition. Unit first sergeants and squad leaders of the candidates are to attend the board.
Cadets will visit with Lina Jobe Middle School TAC students on Monday, 30 April after school. The 7th and 8th graders are being taught about citizenship, leadership, study habits and character subjects by Legacy cadets. TAC students are also monitored for positive academic progress by showing their report cards to our Legacy instructors. Our goals for the younger students are to inspire high self-esteem, show more initiative and demonstrate greater self-discipline. Each Jobe middle-schooler is encouraged to let us meet family and friends as well, for we are all on the same team.
Weather Decision is at 2:15 PM Wednesday afternoon. Please watch for email blasts.
All JROTC units will participate in the Annual Pass and Review Wednesday at Vernon Newsom Stadium. The parade review starts at 6:30 pm. Cadets should be in formation behind the scoreboard between 5:40 pm and 5:45 pm. Uniform is Class B. Boys, please have a good haircut and shave. Ladies, please make sure your hair is up and neat. Parents are encouraged to stay and observe the free admission event. The event should be completed by 7:25 pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
Cadets were allowed to lead LJMS TAC students in a short lesson about Drill and Ceremonies yesterday. We are excited about the 8th-graders, as they will become Legacy students next year. The TAC Club represents “Teamwork, Academics and Character” development for younger students. Our mentors met with the younger students and stressed the importance of being kind, respectful and always doing your best in school. LJMS had approximately 15 students at the meeting and is working hard to disseminate information about the club to middle school students. We are thankful to the principal, Mr. Dowd, and the Counseling Department at Linda Jobe for their help. Our goal is to involve both 7th and 8th graders in the club. The next meeting is Monday, April 30th at 4:15 pm in the LJMS Gym. We look forward to it!
Legacy JROTC is a co-curricular elective that meets the SB5 endorsement for Public Service. It is also designed to support MISD’s Vision 20/20 Third Guiding Statement. JROTC develops confidence, academic rigor, and teamwork by using the Seven Army Values – “Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage” in all our lessons and labs. JROTC is a kid-led organization, and its growth and success are contingent upon cadet involvement in all processes. Our class usually teaches Physical Fitness, Drill, Technology, and Uniform Appearance weekly. The cadets with passing grades are regularly in competition against other schools at scheduled drill meets. Legacy always brings home hardware after a drill meet, and we have been nationally ranked at drill performance two years in a row. Uniforms are issued free of charge for all cadets. Only the competing cadets are issued PT uniforms to wear at drill meets. Each cadet is expected do their best at all things. Each cadet has unique opportunities to earn rank, responsibility and awards. We have the following teams – CyberPatriot computer cybersecurity, Raider rescue, Drill Team (armed and unarmed), Male/Female Color Guard, Academics, LEAD online challenges, and Male/Female Physical Training. Come visit us in EK103!
There will be CyberPatriot Training Thursday of this week. Pass and Review rehearsal is from 3:30 pm – 4:45 pm Tuesday. Cadet showtime for Pass and Review Parade is at Vernon Newsom Stadium (3700 East Broad Street) Wednesday, 25 April between 5:30 pm and 5:50 pm. Award Ceremony is Friday, 4 May 2018 at 6:30 pm.
