JROTC is having a meeting to speak with parents Thursday, 16 August at 6:30 pm. We will be located in the Cafeteria, and will answer any questions you may have, as well as clarify our expectations for cadets. We look forward to meeting you all.
The United States Air Force Association’s CyberPatriot has released the first images for the 2018-2019 competition year. VMware Workstation Player 14.1.2 will be the standard platform, with Cisco, Ubuntu, Server and Windows 10 images. We now have access to the Exhibition images exclusively for unscored, demo purposes. Want your friends to see what CyberPatriots do? Invite them to see the exhibition.
the JROTC introductory Camp has been canceled because only 5 Cadets parents have responded that anyone is able to attend of the camp. We will continue to have the Canned Food Drive at the Mansfield Walnut Creek Walmart on a Saturday after school starts.
Junior ROTC cadets recently completed a challenging and fun Junior ROTC Cadet Leadership Challenge at Mount Lebanon in Cedar Hill.
Several cadets were recognized as the “Most Outstanding”, “Most Inspirational”, “Best Leader”, and “Best Team Player” while at camp. On Monday, cadets were taught how to conduct large-scale ceremonies as leaders, how to use your clothing as flotation devices to prevent drowning in deep water, and engaged in Human Foosball and Gaga Ball.
Tuesday brought confidence as cadets ventured to highs of 40 feet to climb the Alpine Tower and go zip-lining on a cable. Each was rewarded when taught how to use communication skills to build teams made up of complete strangers. And, on top of that, we enjoyed more challenging team sports.
Wednesday, cadets learned Basic Map Reading, Land Navigation, Archery, and about various military opportunities – should the cadet and family agree that is the best path to earn college opportunities after high school.
On Thursday, the cadets had the opportunity to let their new skills work for them as they conducted Closing Ceremonies. Many new friends were made, we learned how to better handle crisis situations, and each cadet walked away with skills that will translate into better school JROTC programs. We look forward to JCLC 2019.

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!
