I am sure you have be wondering, with the new restrictions what is happening with cadets. We officially got the orders that all in person training is to cease until January 2021.
The staff and senior cadets will be meeting virtually tomorrow night to develop a plan to keep you all engaged and apart of the program.
If you have any ideas please reach out to your Platoon Warrant and they will present it up the chain of command.
Any questions please let me know!
As many of you are wondering with the new COVID restrictions what is happening with our unit.
These restrictions technically do not include the cadet program, but with the cadet’s safety as our number one priority, orders from our headquarters, and the goal to curve COVID exposure, we have been given direction to cease all in person cadet training until 1 Dec.
What does that mean?
1. All ACR awards and presentations will occur 1 Dec.
2. The three dates in December 1, 8, and 15 will consist of training and a bunch of fun activities.
3. Senior cadets will be engaged in the next week with a virtual meeting.
4. If the cease training goes past 1 Dec, the staff and senior cadets will develop a temporary solution to keep you all engaged!
Bear with us as we ensure training occurs but keeping your safety always in mind.
Any questions please reach out!
Fundraising is in full swing for the Corps. We looked for something that would be a Covid friendly way to continue fundraising this year.
That being said, we are in the middle of the Purdy's Chocolate, which is doing amazing! Thank you for your support so far. Payments are made when you submit your order. Order cut off is November 25 and will be back and ready for pickup December 8th. Click on the link and either register as a new customer or log in as a returning customer. Once you have signed in, you can join the Cadet Group 57293.
As an alternative to chocolates, we have Poinsettia and festive planters from Growing Smiles. This will be a quick turnaround time with an order deadline of Friday, November 20th in order to have a delivery date of Saturday, December 5th. This will give us lots of time to enjoy the greenery prior to the holidays.
To make this a Covid safe fundraiser, Payments will be etransfer only. Pick up will be curbside at the school on Saturday, December 5th.
Thank you for your support,
Just a reminder to all that there will be no cadets tonight as per the schedule.
On behalf of the Chair, Tara Lacusta, and in the interest of COVID restrictions tonight’s parents meeting will be virtual for all parents using The platform “BlueJeans” at 1900hrs.
Stand by for the email invite this afternoon. We will be using the email address we have on file.
