We are looking forward to getting back to normal next year! If you are taking one of my classes, 1st Block will be Naval Science 2, 2nd and 3rd Block is Naval Science 4, and 5th Block is Leadership/Drill. We are hoping for a lot of you to take the Drill class so we can get our teams ready for competition.
We are back on the schedule for a lot of events! We will be starting a Middle School club with Clayton Middle this year. Our Area Managers Inspection is 29 September, so we need to work hard and fast to get ready.Our first drill meet in 2 years will be at Grays Creek in Oct followed by us hosting the Ironman Fieldmeet. At the end of Octover we will be going to SE Guilford for another drill meet. We are also planning our Military Ball for 3 December. We are hoping that this will be the initial steps on getting back to normal, but with this long break from practice we really need to work hard.
If you want to be part of my Remind group, the class is Naval Science and the class code is @f87fc4249d.
Check out the calendar for all of our upcoming events.
