b. Objectives. Introduction to drill, customs, courtesies, ceremonies, procedures and expectations of New Cadets.
2. Uniform requirements:

3. New Cadets are to report to the front entrance of Cherokee High School North off Willow Bend Road at the designated time and dates. Cadets will be greeted by the SNSI/NSI and escorted to the classroom. Arrive 15 minutes prior to class start time. Punctuality is expected for all events.
On 21 & 22 Aug we will muster at the North Football parking lot, mid-way (Door # 48). This information will be passed again on 20 Aug.
Letters outlining each days events will be mailed to all those students who were enrolled in the NS 1 class as of mid to late July. If you enrolled after mid to late July please email the Major or Chief for further guidance.
Note: The uniforms are issued at no charge to the student/family. The tailoring is done on the JROTC account free of charge to you at the Sunshine Cleaners across from Kings Grant (please see uniform alterations note on web page).
This year we will have a tailor from Sunshine cleaners at Indoc to complete the tailoring. Again, tailoring is free as long as you use Sunshine cleaners and state that the tailoring is for Cherokee NJROTC.
The only charge will be for the Navy JROTC name tags (required) at a cost of $5.
Please bring $5 in cash. We will be ordering the name tags within three weeks of school beginning.
A school physical is required for any JROTC extracurricular activities. These activities include the drill teams, athletic teams, and all camps. The physical is good for one year and also fills the requirement for sports participation.Go to the Cherokee main web page and select the athletics department. You will reach the "How to register for athletic Participation" Complete all steps if you are also playing a fall sport. Skip step 2 if you are only doing NJROTC. Do not turn in the physical to the JROTC staff. Please bring to the School athletic trainer (north or south main office for further directions).
All NJROTC after school "activities" require student's families to pay the activities/sports fee. This includes drill teams, color guard, academic team, physical fitness team, raider team, cadet challenge, and overnight trips. The fee is good for not only NJROTC but all activities and sports.
