Cadet Parent Organization

Welcome to the Patriot Navy Cadet Parent Organization (CPO). The Organization was formed in 2002 to support the academic program and enrichment activities of the Navy Junior ROTC Unit through the voluntary participation of parents and other interested adults in all aspects of the NJROTC program at Patrick Henry High School. In our current year we continue that Mission with renewed optimism for the future! The CPO has been busy planning for an upcoming great year in supporting the Lieutenant and the entire Patrick Henry Cadet Corps in their many activities and pursuits.

CPO Communications

Any important CPO or cadet related announcements are sent though Gmail. Gmail is now extremely restrictive about sending email messages with lengthy distribution lists, so the only way around this was to form a Google group.  If you would like to be added to the mailing list to get our weekly email and any last minute changes, please email request to .


Meetings are held every third Thursday of the month at 18:15, during the school year (this is subject to change in the event of a holiday or bad weather) and are located in the NJROTC classroom at Patrick Henry High School. We encourage all parents and family to join us.


Our organization’s goals include:

  • Improving communications
  • Increasing parental involvement
  • Organizing fundraising & volunteering
  • Building membership to support & strengthen the unit

Supporting the Unit

During the year parents often ask how they can help support the program. Come to the meeting! Bring fresh ideas! Join us cheering on the cadets at drill and raiders’ meets. Everything helps! We have a couple good fund raisers coming up if you have time to lend a hand we definitely have a spot for you. Whether it is donating breakfast for a meet or having a meal at a restaurant when we get a percent of profits, it is all helping. And how would you know about events?…

Come join us for a meeting!
