What We Ask of Parents/Guardians?

 

Any assistance parents/Guardians can provide to the Support Committee and to the cadet Corps, in support of your cadet is greatly appreciated.

The following are a few expectations of parents/guardians:

  • Attend Commanding Officer’s Parades (first Monday of every month or verify calendar) to support your cadet on parade;
  • Parents/Guardians are asked to stay with cadets until an Officer has arrived on-site (for each activity).
  • Parents/Guardians are asked to arrive 15 minutes before the end of the activity to pick up their son/daughter. Being there 15 minutes earlier allows for any unforeseen delays in travel, able to hear announcements, and ensuring cadets are picked up on time.
  • Help with fundraising activities and volunteer for activities, when needed;
  • Help your child learn how to wash, iron, and take care of their cadet uniforms. Please do not do your child’s uniform for them, we want them to learn.
  • Encourage your cadet to use the website as a resource and/or follow their “chain-of-command”. If they’re not sure where a badge should be sewn on their uniform or what time they need to be at an activity, what to bring for a field training exercise (FTX), after checking the website, have them discuss with their Troop Commander or 2IC; and
  • Keep an open communication with the corps. If your cadet is having a hard time, or you have a concern, please send us an email, give us a call or visit us in person. All of our staff are here and committed to offering a fun program to the youth in our community.
