Good morning Seahawk Nation,
Big week for the Seahawks, as we make our final preparations for our Annual Military Inspection, which will be held this Thursday and Friday. The NJROTC department has been working hard alongside the cadets to ensure all the I’s are dotted and the T’s are crossed for a successful audit and inspection. As a reminder, cadets & staff will be dismissed on Friday at 11:20am.
Here are some other “Need to Knows” as we close out February and welcome in March and hopefully warmer weather (not a fan of the cold!).
- There were NO COVID cases last week! Total cases for the year remain at one hundred seventy-six (176).
- Big game for boys’ basketball tonight as they take on Tower Hill tonight in a must-win game to make the postseason. The game is a white-out and we hope to see the Seahawk Nation out in full force and cheering POSITIVELY FOR DMA!
