If you are taking one of my classes next year, 1st Block will be Naval Science 3 and Naval Science 4, 2nd is the same, Naval Science 3 and Naval Science 4, and 4th Block is Leadership/Drill. We are hoping for a lot of you to take the Drill class so we can keep our teams ready for competitions.
The summer schedule is right around the corner. Some cadets will be selected for Sail Academy and Leadership Academy, but anyone that wants to can go to Summer Leadership Training (SLT)at the end of July. SLT is a lot of fun and the cadets get to do many exciting activities, i.e. Zipline, rappeling, canoeing, skeet shooting, all at the boy scout camp Camp Bud Schielle near Rutherfordton NC.
If you want to be part of my Remind group, the class is Naval Science and the class code is @f87fc4249d.
