On March 13th, 2020, our cadets along with Army Junior ROTC cadets from Lenape and Pemberton High Schools and Navy cadets from Cherokee High School will be participating in the Annual Joint Service Military ball.
The Military Ball or dining-out is an age-old tradition. The Ball is an occasion for which military personnel dress in their finest uniforms. Female cadets will have the option of wearing their uniforms or an evening gown. A Military Ball is an opportunity for cadets, instructors, parents, and guests to interact in a social, albeit formal, setting. The evening consists of a formal receiving line, the posting of the colors (flags), a formal dinner, a guest speaker and a dance. In addition, all cadets who are seniors will be recognized individually during the evening.
Cadets will learn how to dress at formal occasions, how to conduct themselves, how to interact with other guests and have fun at the same time. Parents may purchase tickets also and will be seated at adult-only tables.
Senior cadets are assigned to coordinate the Ball under the supervision of JROTC instructors. Team building, communication, and planning are skills honed by the senior cadets.
