Week of December 6, 2015

 

Congratulations to our awesome NJROTC Unit!  The students had their annual inspection last Thursday, December 3.  From Lt. Head:

“Just wanted to pass on how well the cadets performed during the Area Managers Inspection and at the cadet briefings conducted later.  Captain Daniels was very impressed with the school and the cadets not only for the work they do in the unit, but more so for their excellence in almost every other facet of the school such as academics, athletics, performing and visual arts, just to name a few.   The success of the program is not simply a product of the JROTC staff, but rather the collective work of everyone in this building.”

 

Nicely written, Lt. Head.  We have much to be proud of at Patrick Henry High School, but I am most proud of the way our students and staff in every department pull together for the good of our entire student body.  Congratulations, NJROTC students, Lt. Head, MGySgt Dubose, and Master Chief Peters!  Great job!
