EVENTS ON THE HORIZON (see Upcoming Events page or calendar for details)

Leadership Graduation Assistance
4-7 cadets are needed to help set up and take-down the chairs for Leadership Academy graduation on 24 Jun from 0745 to 1100.  An email was sent earlier, but was in error in that cadets do have to provide their own transportation to Great Lakes (or carpool with another cadet). The sign-up has more details. Sign-up

Marksmanship Team
Marksmanship team practice will resume after BLT on selected Thursdays 0800 - 0930 and 0915 - 1100. If you are going to shoot this year, you should be going to Thursday practices. Let C/Chief Gonzalez know if you have conflicts with practice.

CHIL Tutoring
Cadets have the opportunity to volunteer with Hands On Suburban Chicago to become a CHiL (Cooper, Holmes, and London) tutor. CHiL tutoring is an after school program meant to give middle schoolers the help they want and/or need. This program is a great way to give back to the community and possibly the very middle school you may have come from. Cadets will be helping students complete their homework, employ organizational skills, and develop strong study habits. 
More details are available on the website.

Summer Activities!
Illinois State University summer camps have recently been added to the Summer Activities Page. Our cadets attended the cyber camps last year on scholarships, but there are also biology and chemistry camps available.

The 2018 NROTC applications are now open. It's not too early to start (you can update your accomplishments as the year goes on). Go to NROTC to get more info.

Cadet Tutor System
Taking a step towards our unit goal of increasing our unit's average GPA, the unit will be implementing a cadet tutor system. Cadets can make their courses and work-load easier by working along with a personally assigned cadet tutor. Because this will be cadet driven, this also gives cadets an opportunity for Unit Service and valuable experience as a tutor. Appointments can be made as flexible as the student desires.
Please consider quickly filling out the signup for the program: Signup

The Sailors' Creed

I am a United States Sailor. 
I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States of
America and I will obey the orders of those appointed over me. 
I represent the fighting spirit of the Navy and those who have gone 
before me to defend freedom and democracy around the world. 
I proudly serve my country's Navy combat team with Honor, Courage and 
I am committed to excellence and the fair treatment of all.

Unit Goals (as selected by the Cadet Staff)

1. Increase participation in community service and teams.

2. Increase the number of promotions.

3. Increase the average GPA.

ACT Preparation Available FREE

The NJROTC has paid for a stand-alone program to help cadets with test-taking strategies for ACT/SAT and other standardized tests. There is no cost, but because the motivation for cadets to complete the course seems to be tied to guardian and instructor involvement, there is a notification letter for guardians and instructors will have access to cadet accounts. CADETS WHO COMPLETE THE PREP COURSE WILL EARN THE ACADEMIC RIBBON! Cadets can register for ACT or SAT (not both). We recommend ACT unless you're already taking ACT prep courses and you want to check out the SAT (used mostly by colleges on the East and West coasts). Register at http://jrotccollegeprep.com.

Scholarship Availability:  Scholarship Info available on Scholarship Page. See new info from American Legion.
