Commandant’s Corner - February 18th, 2020
Greetings Seahawk Nation! We have a busy week with our Annual Military Inspection taking place this Thursday and Friday. The Annual Military Inspection (AMI) is a yearly audit where the Navy sends an Inspector from Area 4 to audit all facets of the NJROTC program.  This two-day evolution encompasses a comprehensive and thorough inspection that covers all aspects of our NJROTC program. Commander Easley and the Naval Science department have been working diligently to ensure we maintain nothing less than our “Distinguished Unit with Honors” rating.  For those who may not know, this rating affords DMA three nominations to each of our Federal Service Academies (USNA, USMA and USCGA). The inspection concludes on Friday in the Dome with a formal parade beginning sharply at 1000.  You all are invited to attend and see for yourself why we are a “Distinguished Unit with Honors” and considered the “Flagship” of all JROTC programs across the country.  We ask you to please arrive no later than 0945. Cadets know the importance of AMI and always rise to the occasion and we expect nothing less from them this year.  Please help us ensure their uniforms are pressed clean, shoes shined, hair in regulation, and look sharp!  Of course, our cadets also know we reciprocate in a big way and as we always say, celebrate our accomplishments together as a team!  Looking forward to giving back for their hard work! Here is what we have happening around DMA: The interview process for the class of 2024 is finally complete.  Thank you to everyone who assisted in the process.  It is no doubt, time consuming and labor intensive.  Offerings will be made to prospective cadets this Friday at 4:00pm through the school choice website. Later today, you will receive a separate email regarding DMA’s 14th Annual Golf Outing on June 19th.  Those who have played in the past know how good of a time it is, and we look forward to seeing you and some new folks this year!  Stay tuned! Knock knock…who’s there? o Fund- Fund who? o Fund DMA’s Annual Fundraiser!  . Yes, I thought of it all by myself… o Have you participated?  We need your support!  You can pay online through PayPal.  Just go to www.demilacad.org and click on the Donate to DMA tab.  It is that easy. Please help us help your cadet! A message from the AD: Spring Sports is around the corner, please make sure to process your registration on Family ID.

A message from the School Nurse: I wanted to pass along some information from the Medical Society of Delaware (MSD).
