Cadets should clear pizza account balances by next week.  Any cadet with a negative balance will not be able to sign in for pizza next week!  If there are financial concerns that prevent payment, the cadet should contact Master Sergeant Galarza.




BOARD ELECTIONS    


The next Parents' Association Board meeting will be on May 17, 2017.  The meeting will be held in the cafeteria before the awards ceremony, so parents assemble in the cafeteria at 6:45.  The meeting begins at 7:00 in the cafeteria at Wheeling HS.  The awards ceremony will be held in the Field House at 7:30 p.m.  


This board meeting is the meeting in which the parents elect new board members.  Many parents have expressed a willingness to volunteer and help out in any way they can.  Serving on the Parent Association board is a great way to understand what is going on at NJROTC.  The "executive" board consists of the President, VP, Secretary and Treasurer - but there is room for many more people to serve on committees and to help.  As a parent of a cadet in the unit, you are already a member of the association - so this is your opportunity to do something with the association.


To the extent that you crave more insight into the unit - this is your chance.  Please email us at njrotcparentsassociation@gmail.com to let us know if  you are will run for the board.  If you want more information, reach out to any of the board members listed below.

Useful information about PIZZA ACCOUNTS

A Cadet's pizza account is DIFFERENT for the cadet accounts that are managed by Commander Morse and Gunnery Sergeant Collins.  


The Parents Association organizes and serves pizza during Chow on Wednesday evenings to cadets attending evening class.  Typically, chow (dinner) is from 18:30 19:00 (6:30 - 7:00 p.m.) in the Wheeling High School cafeteria.  A cadet may bring food from home or may purchase pizza, however, microwaves and refrigerators are not provided.  

Cadets may opt to purchase a large slice of pizza (choice of cheese, pepperoni or sausage) and a bottle of water for $2.00.  If seconds are available, "seconds" will be called and are served on a first come-first serve basis for $2.00 per slice. 


Payment can be handled one of two ways:


1.    Cadets may put money "on account" and the parent association will have the cadet sign in on a sheet for pizza, deducting the $2.00 from the account if a slice if purchased; or

2.    Cadets may pay money as they go and bring cash each week.  If the cadet pays cash s/he should NOT sign in for pizza.  


If your child is short of funds, the Parent Association will show a debit in their "pizza account" and the cadet will be allowed to eat, but must pay for the previous week's meal the following week.  Cadets should check their balance to makes sure they are not in arrears.


Cadets with balances over -$8.00 will not be allowed to sign in for pizza - and must pay cash for pizza.



If there is a financial issue preventing the cadet from paying for his or her pizza they should see Master Sgt Galarza to discuss the situation.
