Welcome to the Patrick Henry High School Navy JROTC Website
The Patrick Henry High School Navy Junior ROTC program began in 2001, and has grown each year. Our program includes four years of academic course study and follows the Navy Core Values of Honor, Courage and Commitment. In addition to academic studies, cadets are required to participate in physical activities, drills and team building exercises. Cadets may also join one of the following teams:
Fundraisers for NJROTC
It’s time for Extreme Clean and we can use as many volunteers as we can get! Cadets and their parents are encouraged to attend one or both of our events. The first is Friday, September 6th at approximately 8:00 pm. The second is Sunday, September 8th at approximately 7:00 am. If you are interested in attending, please contact Terri Boltz. Cadets, sign up no later than the first day of school.
This year we are selling insulated cups (made in the USA!!) for $15. We also have water bottles ($10) and t-shirts ($15) for sale. Parents, Cadets and NJROTC supporters, be sure to get these while supplies last! If you would like any of these items, please contactTerri Boltz. We will also have a “trunk sale” Friday night and Sunday before Extreme Clean.
The Photo Gallery has been replaced with a private Flickr account for Cadets and their parents. If you are a Cadet and are interested in joining the group, see Lt. Head for information. Parents can email the CPO President for instructions.
Note from the Senior Naval Science Instructor -
WELCOME BACK! I have no clue what happened to the summer but all of a sudden it’s Labor Day Weekend and school starts on Tuesday. Returning cadets will find a school with some differences, which will present a few challenges for the unit, BUT, it’s still the same school and a unit ready for a successful year.
The biggest change for the unit and cadets is that A and B days are now a true 8 period schedule. A1 and B1 are regular-length classes and are different. The good news is that this allows cadets to fit more classes and electives into their schedules and improve their GPA and take more electives (ie: band and NJROTC).
The unit looks like it will number between 150 and 160 cadets and the academic talent is still there with the unit having both the Senior Class Valedictorian and Salutatorian as members of the unit. The Drill Team looks strong and was able to field a 12-man exhibition using just under-class cadets at the end of last year. The Raiders have been practicing twice a week most of the summer and are getting very strong.
For the 1st time in my 11 years we were not able to conduct a Freshman Orientation due to the new requirement of Professional Training of teachers during that week. This challenge will also be met and I expect all upper-class cadets to assist with the transition of the freshmen and help them become part of the best unit in Virginia.
I have loaded most cadets into the blackboard system and although I am no sure when this system will be visible, I encourage everyone to log on and try to find my class. I will use this system to assign work and communicate with parents and cadets.
Master Guns and I are excited to meet everyone Tuesday. Even if you are not in class with us that day, stop by and say hello. For the meantime, check the set of your sails and get ready to go.
